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 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 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 ( ) 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.
