Mmm, you do realize that while the client API implementation is GPLd,
the database is $$$-ware? 
Unless there is a project for a free alternative to said database which
allows using the same API (cf. freedb vs. cddb), I'd stick this package 
into  contrib as it'll be quite useless without the commercial data.
