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.

mitbrächte, wäre das bedauerlich.  Was bei Windows der Umfang eines
"kompletten Betriebssystems" ist, nennt man bei Linux eine Rescuedisk.
