Multi-disc albums

For what it is worth, I am also interested in this.

It seems to me the idea could be extended to other collections.  Each DVD in a set could have its own list of chapters, each book in a set could have its own set of chapters ...  

As a suggestion, I think exposing a way to make multiple tables like this is a bit higher priority than figuring out how to import them from MusicBrainz or other online sources.  Once users can make multiple track tables, then a way to import them might be easier.

Searching could be interesting.  If I search for "Funeral For A Friend", for example, I do not know if it is on the first or second CD of the "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" set.  The search function will have to go through all of the track tables.  

If there is a limit on the number of track tables, it needs to be fairly high - at least 20.  I have an LP collection of Bach organ music that has 18 disks, and many other collections with up to 10 or 11 disks.  I think there are some CD sets with over a hundred disks, such as a complete Mozart collection.
