Get's my vote - I would love to have virtual dirs so that (for example)
Fleetwood Mac turn up under both "Blues" and "Fleetwood Mac" ..also.. each
compilation album would have it's files also show up under the specific artist

I suppose its just a matter of whether you can see this new feature as an
improvement, or if you prefers to stick to old ways because they are familiar.
