I have been reading your source for a couple of hours. Excellent work!

I would like an option to generate IDs in addition of textstrings for stereomodes, vbr types and stuff.
something like:
["channelmode"]=>string() // mono, stereo, joint stereo or dual channel
["channelmodeID"]=>int() // 0,1,2,3

also make it possible to do this with the id3v2 frames that works with numbers so that they can ba stored in a database with numbers and be resolved by one of your lookup functions or a linked table or whatever is good for the situation.

It's not always good to get everyting in text strings only.

Question to the developers:
Are you changing anything to the code right now?
If not I can implement the changes I suggested (at least for mpeg frame info) and send it back to you, maybe you will be happy with my changes or maybe not. It you don't like it you can just throw it away.
I would like to get an answer to this asap.

Suggestion implemented.
As of getID3() v1.3.0, this information is returned in ["mpeg"]["raw"]
