[gst-devel] passing through compilation and album artist metadata

I'm using gstreamer together with scons to convert my music library
(mostly flac files) to mp3 I can listen to in iTunes.
This is done through the following command, ran by scons:
cmd = Command(tgt, src,
'gst-launch-0.10 filesrc location=$SOURCE ! decodebin ! ' +
'audioconvert ! lame vbr=new vbr-quality=4 ! id3v2mux ! ' +
I noticed that the mp3 files produced that way are missing the
"TCMP=1" and "TPE2=Various Artists" tags, even if the source file
has the corresponding "compilation=1" and "albumartist=Various
Artists" flags. This is patent when you use iTunes, because it screws
up cover flow.
I use gstreamer 0.10.15 on ubuntu lucid lynx.
Is this a known problem? I could not find a reference in the bug
tracker nor in the archive. Maybe I am missing something?
