The struct mp3entry has the fields

    char *title;
    char *artist;
    char *album;
    int tracknum;

and some more.

- tracknum isn't set in setid3v1title(...) (of id3.c)
- year, genre, comment (all fields of id3v1.1) aren't variables of
  mp3entry and aren't processed

General question: Which fields of id3v1.1 and id3v2 should be
processed? Which should be displayed? If something is never displayed,
it needn't be read, of course.

The tracknum could make a function possible, that all files in a dir
are played in the order of the tracknum, year and genre are only
additional information to the user.

Bye, Uwe.
