sorry for jumping in like this. i didn't read the whole thread or your
patch, i hope you don't mind. here is my question:

one problem i have with mythmusic metadata is that whenever i change the
tags of mp3s that are already in the db, the changes don't get picked up.
only new files get added properly. is your patch taking care of that?

if not, my idea is to have one button in the frontend that only scans
for new files (the current behaviour) plus one button that rescans all
files (new functionality). i think two buttons would make sense, because
rescanning all files can take a long time, something you don't want when
you just added a single new album.

i'll be busy with school until march, so there is no chance that i take
care of this myself until then. i just hoped someone else gets around to
do this before me :-)

thanks, t.
