I have to say it's an overkill. I have like 20k entries in my RhythmDB
and would be rather unhappy if I have to manually edit them. Wouldn't
it be better to store such metadata either in Tracker or whatever
metatacker one uses or to identify tracks by some UUIDs (eg. MusicDNS
PUIDs) instead of simply location?

Files like to move around, y'know and ratings are really precious data
not to be lost under any circumstances. After all - you could just
rerip your music and here it is again, but there's no way to resume
your carefully tailored user prefs.
