Will this change, or does anyone know a better way to do it (if it's
done this way by design).  

My thoughts would be that if I define a library root (ie: /mnt/mp3) 
where all my music goes, I'd like to be able to add music to that from 
anywhere (ie: via the musicbrainz tagger on my windows machine) and not 
have to add it in manually, or worse, have to remember what's been 
added or changed if I haven't started RB for a while :)  The current 
featureset is nice though for changing filenames of music existing in 
RB already though.
