Mutagen

Mutagen is a python script, and this is why a python installation is necessary.

Due to its high portability and excellent support, mutagen was chosen as the mp3 tagging tool. It is much better than most of the tagging libraries that are available.

BallroomDJ uses the standard output from mutagen, so unicode always needs to be tested carefully when there is a new release.

As mutagen is not compiled, mp3 tag handling is slower. Most of the time this does not matter much.
