ignoring videos and pictures because both are not really part of the
core yet... how would it know if a audio file is
music/audiobook/podcast? I'm pretty sure its easy for you to manually
edit your tagnavi_custom.config file to do this for how you have
*your* audio files layed out, but we arn't going to dictate to users
how they have to sort their files.
