Editing Tags for AAC/MP4 would make this script my hero. But I may jsut have to do it myself! Any plans?

Within the next few weeks/months - no.
Eventually, at some time in the more distant future - probably.
If you do code something yourself, feel free to submit it for inclusion in a future version of getID3() :)

But! But! whaaaaa

But......

Ok. right on. Good codebase to recomend as a well written example? Binary manipulation in php is da dumps. Can I cheat and use mpeg4ip's tools?

Calling an external binary for tag writing is not forbidden :)
getID3() currently uses metaflac, shorten, vorbiscomment, etc for writing tags etc. If you do use an external binary, something that's available for both *nix and Windows would be highly preferable.

You can use libmp4v2 from MPEG4IP for MP4 file and tag reading/writing, it works fine in FAAC, open source AAC encoder, too, because the necessary source code was added to MPEG4IP by Menno, the FAAC project admin.

So you can find libmp4v2 in the current FAAC CVS snapshot on Audiocoding.com (folder /common/mp4v2) or in the MPEG4IP CVS and tarballs. By the way, the SourceForge project Madman (file management for XMMS etc.) has just added this feature to their CVS.
