FS#2974 - "album artist" ID3 tag support

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).

superceded by  FS#6638 

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.

new version (v2) :
added the album artist info to the “show ID3 info” screen

upadated for the current CVS (langv2 broke 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.
