This works only partially.  If you don't have one format for your tree
then it gets really confused (if you have say artist/album/title-track.mp3
for some songs, but artist/title.mp3 it gets really confused).  This is
not the worst part.  In tree mode it seems like myth can't figure out
how long a song is, and so it won't seek.  Any attempt to fast forward
or rewind just restarts the song.
