Feature Requests

I've added over 2000 albums to my music collection in Tellico so far and 
have a couple of ideas for features that I would like to see added.

1.  I have a lot of multi-disc sets that I prefer to store as a single 
album.  If I can find the album in MusicBrainz, it is often the way I 
want it, but if I use "Import Audio CD Data...", the only thing I've 
found that works is to import the first disc and then manually add the 
tracks for all other discs.  A way to merge entries to add all of the 
tracks from one album to another would be very useful.

2.  I sometimes take the time to use K3b to rip CDs as I am adding them 
to Tellico.  It works well if the online CDDB database used by both 
applications has the album.  But if the album is not in that database or 
if the information in that database isn't accurate (lots of typos, 
etc.), I have to edit the information in both applications to accomplish 
what I want.  K3b does have the capability of saving the edited 
information to locally (in ~/.cddb) and sometimes it retrieves that data 
instead of the online data if the CD is reloaded.  It would be real nice 
if Tellico could load that local copy when importing CDs and/or if 
Tellico could export CD information for use in K3b.
