The thing is, pretty much every implemetation out there covers 1-147 and
that's why Rockbox should as well. Anyway, ID3v2.3 is outdated, and the
genre list wasn't really meant to be used. Notice that ID3v2.4 only
includes 1-79 (Section 7.A). Should we remove 79-147 then?
ID3 is hardly an official standard (not even "official" if you ask me),
certainly ID3v1 isn't. The genres 1-147 are accepted by all the tools I
know, and I see no reason why Rockbox should leave out some on purpose.
That'd just be stupid. Besides, there are some of the >125 ones that
In my eyes, lacking these genres is a bug that should be fixed.

If that's because of this issue, I suggest you team up with this guy
and take on AOL, then.
