I'm guessing that most users will be primarily interested in the next
track name. This value can be retrieved even if the mpeg thread has not
yet loaded the track by calling playlist_peek(1). So, how about special
casing track name and displaying it even if nid3 is NULL.

BTW. I think there might be a bug in the patch: you're not checking
whether or not id3 is NULL before trying to access it in get_tag().
