I agree with the patch overall, and I think that supporting these broken
files is fine to the point of them working, but I think that any ID3
stuck onto a FLAC file should only ever just be be skipped.  That is
also the behavior of the official FLAC reference decoder.  A FIXME
comment makes it look like we're not fully supporting something that we
should be.  That's all. :)
