Bug#208090: A hierarchical display of songs (by, eg, artist) would be nice

Package: easytag
Version: 0.28.1-2
Severity: wishlist

  I'd like to be able to view the list of sound files in a two-level
tree.  (the upper level could be artist, album, etc)  The sorting
options give you something like this now, but it is rather difficult to
figure out where each group begins and ends.  Of course, it should be
possible to apply commands to an entire subtree of songs.

  Motivation: I have a number of ogg files which I encoded from CDs
without sufficient editing of the CDDB information.  As a result,
I have muliple variants of some artists' names.  For instance, before I
manually normalized some of the worst offenders, I had "Bach", "J.S.
Bach", and "Johann Sebastian Bach".  (not to mention the pieces that
were listed by performer where the composer was more appropriate)

  A program like easytag is the best way for me to deal with this, but
it would be even easier if this feature was available :)
