I know about that, but that's not really user friendly. Don't expect
an avarge user of music player to be a command-line guru, right?

I was overexaggerating the problem, true, but I wanted to focus on

Leaving the thing as is and saying: "you can always grep, sed and vi
your database" probably won't attract many new users, you know ;)
