Well, sorry I didn't get this submitted in time for 0.11, but better late than 
never, right?  Anyway, this is the 'second part' of the CD ripping patch (the 
first part is in 0.11).  This patch does the following:

- Fixes the way Non-ID3 metadata is parsed from filenames so that track titles 
don't get leading spaces

- Adds a new settings page to MythMusic for Ripper settings.  I moved the 
existing settings from 'General' that had to do with the ripper and collected 
them under this new group.  The 'General' settings dialog is now just a 
single page.  There are three (but logically one) new settings called 'Ripped 
audio filing scheme' with three checkboxes: one each for Genre, Artist and 
Album.  They work as follows:  for each box checked, the appropriate 
directory will be inserted into the full path of ripped audio tracks.  So if 
you were ripping Van Halen's "1984", you'd get the following scenarios:

(genre=on, artist=on, album=on)
filed in: <music storage>/Rock/Van Halen/1984

(genre=on, artist=off, album=on)
filed in: <music storage>/Rock/1984

(genre=off, artist=on, album=on) (DEFAULT)
filed in: <music storage>/Van Halen/1984

Hope it's usefule to someone.
