Is it possible that id3lib is 'complete'? The id3 format isn't extremely

I suppose it's possible, but even 'finished' software should have bug fixes
and compatibility updates.

As far as being a security risk... it's not a network daemon, and there's no
reason it should have suid root or anything like that. I imagine the worst you
could do is throw a malformed media file at it.

LOL... makes sense.
