[Clam-devel] Feature requests for Annotator

In order to make the Annotator really valuable with a little work I 
thing two features would
make it really attractive:

1. Musicbrainz support

Musicbrainz is a community maintained music metadata database that is 
used in KAmarok, for instance.

Using libmusicbrainz it should be pretty immediate to add lookup support 
to the Annotator. I don't
think I will have time next week but I might try to do a spike.

2. MPEG-7 compatible output

This + 1 would allow, for instance the following workflow:

- Load a song
- Look it up in musicbrainz
- Run low level descriptors
- Write an MPEG7-compatible output including id3-derived metadata plus 
low-level descriptors

Any volunteer? ;-)
