Hmmm.  Might be simpler to just do:

 select filename from musicmetadata;

store that in a map<qstring, bool> like you've got the file list, then compare 
the music list against that.  

Reason being, that would make possible to cull entries out of the database 
that are no longer present on the filesystem at the same time it's looking 
for new files..
