A not-too-old SVN (as I just added a feature to TRAC).

My main problem was not orphaned entries, but wrong genres and track 
numbers. There is a serious bug in taglib which failed reading track 
numbers and genres from 300 or so of my MP3's. They only had id3v2, and 
there was a tag in there which caused the library return error values. 
So I had to remove the data to get mythmusic to "reload" the genres.
