Music::Tag - Interface for collecting information about music files.
Extendable module for working with Music Tags. Music::Tag Is powered by
various plugins that collect data about a song based on whatever
information has already been discovered.
The motivation behind this was to provide a convenient method for fixing
broken tags in music files. This developed into a universal interface to
various music file tagging schemes and a convenient way to augment this
from online databases.

it back into the tag are available. These modules will use available
information (REQUIRED DATA VALUES and USED DATA VALUES) and set various
data values back to the tag.
