I am trying to improve the vdHeide library as my project is heavily
dependent on this lib.
I can see from the vd heide code, that when updating the ID3v2 tags the
padding size is not
added to the header tag size fields and not to the padding size in the
extended header.

My questions:

According to spec the size value in the ID3v2 header should include the size
of the padding bytes.
and then the extended header should include the padding size as well. Why
include the padding size into
2 places?

BTW, the improved vdHeide will be available as open source on sourceforge.

Thanks / Christophe
