Hence "experimental" in the release notes and why there was no config UI
for it just yet. However, this should all be resolved in CVS, and
there's even a nice simple configuration/login box now, available from
the Music toplevel menu:

The methods for querying MusicBrainz for track information in the CD
scenario and the already-ripped scenario are very different. However,
the arbitrary artist/album/title query support is already implemented at
the raw MusicBrainz level. The more difficult task is designing the
logic for automatically scanning and fetching in the background. While
it's only about a half day's work, it's a low priority for me right now,
and I haven't had the time to do it.
