It may be better to let this package just die. It has not been really
updated in five years (it looks like the only reason it got any
attention was the /usr/doc transition had to be dealt with anyway, and
upstream is inactive), it doesn't support ID3v2, it has major bugs
(#369260), it's not locale-aware. mp3rename and lltag do the same thing,
and many graphical tools do it better.

If you have a pressing need for its particular command line syntax, it
looks very easy to wrap around an existing, better library.
