Actually, my perl script depends on a storage structure like:
/Genre/blahblahblah (where blah ~ Artist/Album/file, etc, whatever)

..where genre is at a top (or at least fixed) level. So if your files
aren't organized like that, the script wouldn't be much use. (I.e., the
genre must be able to be parsed automatically.) Not sure if there would be
much demand for it...
