The acoustic similarity search is interesting, I had not thought of
doing something like that. I did have a similar artist/song panel as
one of my optional deliverables (i.e., I'll do it if I have the time).
I'm not sure what most people find more useful. If similarity data is
something that people would like to see, I could make it a priority. I
just didn't prioritize it because it is not a feature that I have used
much in players that have the capability.

If you would like to, that would be great. I can't guarantee that I
will have the time to integrate it but it would definitely make a
useful addition.
