Hi,

I've looked into the Python ID3 libraries just recently. Most of them
use either v1 or v2, the only one I came over that uses both is
pyid3lib, a wrapper around the id3lib library.

I used it to write both a script to batch-modify tags (set all artist
fields to the same value, ask for title) and one to synchronize
information in filename and ID3 tag. Some files don't have a tag, but
you can retrieve the information from the filename, while some others
have correct tags but a malformed filename. This second script of mine
tries to find these differences and bring the two sources of information
to sync.
