Dave Evans is currently pondering some changes to the FreeDB stuff
while trying to improve our FreeDB compatibility so that we could

In preparing for this change, we're looking at the usefulness of the
automatic FreeDB imports (manifested via add album insertions from the

What do you think?

incorporation -- looks like the lawyers are finally making some
progress on the non-profit incorporation!
