I might add an optional arg to play() for the start point, rather than calling 
seek after play() - it's only slight and it might even be my imagination but 
I can hear a fraction of a second of audio from the start of the track before 
the seek.

I'll add those extra columns you wanted, unless you want to do that instead. 
I'm re-writing eskils patch for reading Album Art from id3v2 tags to work 
with the albumart table and the new tagging lib atm. There is some unfinished 
work to be done on the album art visualiser too.
