I am sorry about that.
Yes, when I saw your proposal, I thought, Hmm, that is better thought out,
but not within my reach yet.

It is meant to be a C1 solution, I would be very happy to begin work on the
ideas that will lead to your suggestion for C2, as it seems a total
re-write will be required for C2 anyway.

Meanwhile, if there are little changes I can make to the current version to
make it more useful to you, please let me know. But, I do want to release
something soon that will solve a needs of C1 users.....

I think you are correct here.

I agree.
I spent a long time trying to get advice on how different TagLibs interact,
so I could build a more modular system. But it just did not lead anywhere.
What the hell I thought, I'll make it work with Files, I can manage that :)

Your modularity appears to be couched largely in terms of C2, something I
do not fully understand.

Cool :)

Me too.
