Looking at what RB currently uses, and might use in the not too distant

Gotten from the file itself:
* Track and Disc number (and possibly disc total track count)
* Duration
* ReplayGain adjustments
* Performer

User metadata:
* play count
* time of last play
* rating (probably scaled 0.0 - 1.0 is best)
* "first seen" (to show the user's "new" music)

We're also using an actual date, not just the year, since several
formats (e.g. vorbis comments) support that.
