Hi David,

I finally found time to upload a file to your disecting tool.

It seems that the iTunesDB parser doesn't grok iTunes 8.2 format 
yet. At least the "mhla" chunk gives php warnings passed down from 
an unpack() call.

Three suggestions.

1) please add a hexdump to the itunesDB output the same way the iTunesSD
output has.

2) please indent the chunk title lines like they were in the ipodlinux wiki.
this would help to see the structure at a glance.

3) please make it possible to leave a comment when uploading a file or a
.tar.gz. I can see that it becomes difficult to keep different file sets
apart without a way to write some words about the content of the respective
itunesdb and the program versions/ipod models used.


PS: the interface is very funky!
