Drifting away...

Ever get the feeling that getID3 is drifting sooo far away from its first intention (to retrieve ID3 tags from MP3 files).

Now its retrieves everything about everything and soon, it'll retrieve everything about everything else.
lol maybe its time for a name change as getID3 some how doesn't quite fit the description.

sorry, I just had to say that...

getID3() used to be a single function, used to only deal with mp3s, only with ID3v1 and/or ID3v2. By the time it expanded significantly beyond that there was too much "brand loyalty" built up in the name to justify changing the name to something else. And indeed to what? getEverythingAboutAnything() maybe? :wink:
