Help me lazyweb!!!

Does anyone know of any programs that can add and edit frames for ID3v2 tags in mp3 files? The latest version of Audacity looks like it might let you do it but i haven't found a way to save the tag without re-exporting the entire file.

I have recently learned that you can make an mp3 into a "bookmarkable" mp3 by adding a "PCST" frame to its ID3 tag. This means that if you're playing it on a mp3 player with bookmark support that can read ID3v2 tags it will remember your place in that mp3, even if you switch to another file and then back again. "PCST" is an abbreviation of Podcast which is what the feature was originally meant for, but it's also a great for audiobooks. Audible files have this behaviour by default on Audible-ready players which is the main reason why i still use the Audible format.
