I figure the re-encoding problem is going to come up again and again for me,
so I've hacked together a python script to handle the whole rip/encode/tag
process that records the disc_id used for freedb lookups. The idea is that
later on when I want to reencode RC2 oggs to RC3/1.0, I'll build a
disc_id/track - > file map so the software can copy across the metadata and
replace the file automatically. All I'll need is a trained monkey to cycle
the CDs through the drive :-)
I have the script here if you want it. It's hackerware at the moment, but it
might be useful to you.
