Umm, how is this different? In your example, %d3 is genre, %d2 is
artist, etc. I in fact use those vars for genre specifications at the
moment - the 4th line of my wps is the rather complicated:

%?iy<%iy >%?ig<%ig|%?d5<%d5:%d4|%?d3<%?d4<%d4:>%d3|%d2>>>

%iy and %ig being potential future tags, and default 'd' variables being
situation-dependent genres, handling various (complicated :) cases like:

\Electronica\Drum & Bass\Amon Tobin\Bricolage\Amon Tobin - Easy
[shows Electronica:Drum & Bass]

\Indie Rock\Dismemberment Plan\Emergency & I\The Dismemberment Plan -
You Are Invited.mp3
[shows Indie Rock]

\Jazz\Bop & Mainstream\Miles Davis\The Quintet 1965-68\Nefertiti\Miles
Davis - Pinocchio.mp3
[shows Jazz:Bop & Mainstream]

\Rock\Various Artists\Lamb of God - Black Label.mp3
[shows Rock]

I don't see what different purpose your 'b' tags would serve.
