This is a very simple patch to add an album artist tag to the WPS.
I've been using it for quite some time and thought it might be useful to others so i decided to post it here.
This tag is common in foobar and is very useful to distinguish albums with various artists (see http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=Foobar2000:Encouraged_Tag_Standards#ALBUM_ARTIST for more info).
This task depends upon

sorry, forgot to mention the new WPS tag for album artist is %ip

Also i'd like to add this field to the "show ID3 info"
screen, so that will probably come when i have time to look
at it.

How about incorporating the functionality of this (ALBUM ARTIST/ALBUM_ARTIST) and http://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/4961 plus support for DISC TITLE/DISC_TITLE tags into one patch? I don't know in how far the spaces in %ALBUM ARTIS% and %DISC TITLE% as proposed by the foobar wiki ( http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=Foobar2000:Encouraged_Tag_Standards ) could be a problem across platforms.

Btw, for anyone that's trying to use this: it doesn't work for mp3 files for some reason. Nicolas knows about it. He says it DOES work as intended for ogg files.
