Linux and itunescompilation id3

I was looking for a tool to set the itunescompilation (see here) ID3-field of certain mp3-files. This is necessary for iTunes to recognize that imported files belong to a compilation (or not). Most of the (decent) Linux tools for id3 tagging are not able to perform that task (including EasyTag). Fortunately, I found eyeD3 (see here), which can be used as follows:

$ eyeD3 --set-text-frame=TCMP:1
