RE: search a string

I think an easier solution would be to simply search the current playlist by
song name. That way you don't need a separate database (that will obviously
become out of date, or the generation tool won't be available when you need
it). The most useful parts of songs are usually in the filename and
directory name.

This is a good thing that would be really usefuj. ...I wrote a console
mode ID3 tag browser (which is imo much better than mp3info), but need a
persistent db and have been too lazy to write it. I think the things a db
needs are:

* file timestamps, so you can reload updated tags
* ID3 tag values like TRK vs. TRCK, not just summations like "song"
* output convenient for piping to xargs

there is a complication that I've noticed in gnu locate: a find should
only return files that the caller has read permissions on.
