Addendum to this.  Further inspection of the Musicbrainz site suggests that
they too are still in the process of standardizing their metadata spec.  So
there are no gobs of data to import yet.  :(

So reduce my initial enthusiasm a notch.  It may still be a good idea to use
musicbrainz, (and they would probably appreciate having a 3rd party using
their format).
