Bug Description

Crates are very useful to allow a track belonging to more then one genre.
But sorting a big library that way is just like painting the Forth Bridge.

Scenario:
You decided to create a new crate for songs with genre ska.
You can sort your library for genre == ska, but you will only find a few tracks because some of them have genre rock, pop or ska-punk.
Now it would be nice to ask last.fm: Give me a list with all of my tracks taged with "ska".

Wouldn't this be better approached with smart creates and either:

-The Track Meta Data Editor GSOC proposal aims to improve the process of retrieving meta data from external sources. Additional subgenre tag.

-Specific last.fm genre tag. Hardcoded or in a custom tags framework.

This approaches are more general and flexible (IMHO). What do you think?

Hi Ferran,

Yes, you are right. Very good Idea Sorting the tracks to crates by last.fm
tags would be really useful. But that are not necessarily smart crates.
Normal crates would work.
Somehow like that: If a genre_rock crate exists. Mixxx can lookup all
tracks at last fm or discogs or any other service an put them to that crate
if it is tagged with rock.
I am afraid that a too smart approach will be annoying since the online
tags may not fit to the US ers idea of sorting or are just wrong.
In any case, a solution should be generic enough to be easily adopted to a
third service.

Kind regards,
Daniel
