Here you go.  The very best recording, using most of the legal tags
(admittedly not to best advantage, but the entry in FreeDB sucked
similarly), and it's still essentially useless:

Have fun with it :)

Then they are advocating making it very hard to distribute a piece of
music that consists of more than one file.

What this comes down to is whether you believe that it makes sense to
put some necessary information in the filename and other necessary
information in the tags, or whether the tags should be the uniform
method of associating metadata with a file.  Convince me that some
information should ONLY be in the filename and not in the tag!

Ok, close enough.  It's more obvious which is which if they're named
as I suggested, but some of the other tags have very non-intuitive
names, so I bow to precedent there :)
