Anyone have any experience inserting long comments into ID3 tags?
According to the specs, I should be able to use newlines in the
comment field, but my attempts (using 'id3v2') seem to record
only the very last line.

I'm looking for a method that will allow me to do this in batch
mode and a quick shell script. Something like:

<tagging_tool> <comment_file> <mp3_file>

Right now, I'm using this:

id3v2 -t "`cat desc/1234.desc`" 1234.mp3

...where "desc/1234.desc" contains the description that I want,
often 40+ lines.

Any help appreciated.
