This is actually pretty easy to do in Rhythmbox. To view the comment
field, use Edit→Preferences and enable the “Comment” checkbox. You can
right-click on any track in Rhythmbox and click “Properties” in order to
edit the comment field, and you can create an automatic playlist
(Music→Playlist→New Automatic Playlist…) which supports matching tracks
based on strings in the comment field.

Hope that helps!
