Write tags without rewriting file

ajostergaard
created an issue

Would it be possible to just re-write the tags in the file, not re-write the entire file? Somehow the app "Identify" does this; its writes are really fast. MetaX and MetaZ both rewrite the entire file, which can take 10-20 minutes!

iTunes also doesn't appear to actually rewrite the file.

    It seems to me that the overWrite option is a little overloaded and counter intuitive as it will edit the file if there is sufficient padding available and only overwrite if editing isn't possible. However it does seem to satisfy the requirement - thanks!
