With IPC_FORMAT_TITLE_EXTENDED and waFormatTitleExtended::useExtendedInfo == 1, if you return 0 from your tag function, it will cause Winamp to go lookup the tag through IPC_GET_EXTENDED_FILE_INFOW_HOOKABLE (which is what ATF is using to resolve %tags% in the playlist titles, save for "filename" and "folder").
Returning -1 just means "empty tag" and is mainly used to avoid mallocing an empty string.

p.s. I'll post an example soon of how to use the tagz.w5s service directly
