Sorry I dont have time to check properly right now but I think if I
remember rightly you can change the formats by altering the  m_format*
variables in metadata.cpp at around line 429. Actually looking at the
code below the formats it looks like you can add the 'MusicFormat*'
settings to the DB and those formats will be used in preference without
having to recompile anything :-)

Let me know if you need more info and I get back to you when I have more
