IIRC in Ogg comments, the "artist" field is loosely defined and can
correspond to either the composer or the performer.  I like the idea that
the tags should list "composer" and "performer" and the user can choose
which of the two should be considered "the artist", so you don't need
a separate composer-browser.

Or maybe rather than choose, the artist browser could list albums/songs
under both the composer and the performer's name.  So if you choose Bach,
you get all your albums/songs interpreting pieces from Bach (some of which
might be interpreted by Glenn Gould), whereas if you choose Glenn Gould
you'd get all the albums/songs performed by Glenn Gould (some of which might
be composed by Bach).
