Subject: Support for embedded cuesheets

Support for embedded cuesheets

Unless there are objections or suggestions for a better method of
implementation, I hoped to commit my patch "Support for embedded
cuesheets" at some point.

It currently supports the FLAC tag (Vorbis comment) CUESHEET as well as
the custom ID3v2 TXXX CUESHEET tag.

I've gone for this approach for a number of reasons;

  - The existing code for reading cuesheet files was easy to modify to
take an offset and number of bytes to read.
  - Embedded cuesheets (as opposed to the FLAC cuesheet metadata block)
can contain TITLE/ PERFORMER.
  - Embedding cuesheets "as is" in metadata is easily added to other
formats (Ogg Vorbis and Speex already work as a by-product).

If there's enough demand, I could look into adding FLAC cuesheet
metadata block support at a later date.
