Another way would be to have the mpeg thread read the whole file (instead of skipping over the id3 tags as it does today) and then call id3info with a buffer pointer, buffer len and a file descriptor (for setid3v1title()).

Then we wouldn't need to read the file in small chunks (=more speed) and we wouldn't open it twice (=more speed). And, as a nice bonus, we'd get the whole id3v2 tag in ram, ready to parse.
