I suppose it's possible, but even 'finished' software should have bug fixes
and compatibility updates.
Compatibility with what? As noted, the IDv3 format hasn't changed.

Kernel changes, soname changes, api changes, etc.
The IDv3 format is not the only thing this program needs to be compatible with.

There are some open bugs, though:

http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?limit=10&func=&group_id=979&atid=100979&assignee=&status=1&category=&artgroup=&submitter=&keyword=&artifact_id=&submit=Filter

so it seems it's not quite complete.

taglib is probably the best actively-developed modern alternative.

Hmmm... might be worth looking into... if taglib is still being actively developed.
