[Rhythmbox-devel] multiple songs per file support in library

Hi all,
A recent post posed the question of supporting flac + cuesheet files,
there was not much respose in that thread. My question is of a more
technical nature.

I am interested in adding support for flac files containing an embedded
cuesheet (ie. one file per album, rather than one file per song).

Can any of the developers out there comment on whether this is possible
using the current framework? From my brief look at the library code it
seems that when an RB_LIBRARY_ACTION_ADD_FILE event occurs, one new
RBNode is created and added to the library, this node represents the
song right?

All this happens well before the file type and metadata is looked up.
How then, could I add "multiple songs per file" support to the library?
I certainly dont wish to create a whole new "source" just for flac

Any ideas/thoughts would be appreciated.

Keep up the good work,
