I guess we could easily make it an option in the songdb.pl.
Personally, all my songs are ordered:
Artist\Album\*.mp3
and i know a lot of other people that do this as well,
on top of that, i have albums following that hierarchy without id3tags.
I suggest we make it an option in the songdb.pl

As a side note. rashers work on making albums with multiple artists
possible broke the current songdb.pl, a safe version to use is 1.16.
I'm gonna try to get rasher to talk with zagor, hopefully zagor will
know what exactly is required to make albums with multiple artists
possible.
