Well, this has never meant to behave this way, so if people have built
their usage patterns upon broken behaviour this is now entirely their

that will be after 1.0. And I want this particular thing in 1.0, as it
belongs to the "core".

We could define a certain fuzziness so that an album with just 1-3
tracks missing will still show up ..
