I don't really think so, A lot of my completely non technical friends
would burn their itunes mp3 directory to CD and give it to someone else.
And if you download music from Kazaa or somewhere, then quite often
you'll end up with mp3s that are correctly tagged, but tagged in a
different way from others.

No, we won't handle all the cases, and I don't think we should be
expected to either, but I don't think doing a case-insensitive compare
so that obvious things like "Waltz for Koop" and "Waltz For KOOP" are
both the same album complicates things too much.

I guess my view is that things should "Just work" for most people.
