Hi,

I personally dislike storing things like images and large texts in id3v2 tags,
although it would be one more step towards implementing features of the original
iriver firmwares (btw, is lyrics support a stopper for an iriver release of
rockbox?).

lrc files, which are widely available are a far better way of storing lyrics,
and the software that puts lyrics in the id3 tags usually start from an lrc file.

If lyrics are ever to be implemented, it would be a good idea to support both
solutions.
