nothing that complicated.  simply, when you gnupod_addsong with --decode,
the perl scripts grab existing vorbis comments (ie artist, title, etc), and
pass through to lame/faac.  i'm simply suggesting if there's a year field in
the header, pass it through on the command line to the encoding program.

yeah, i don't know either (i don't use itunes).  i'm pretty sure that
mp3gain just writes an id3 tag, and it appears the ipod honors it on
