It's not so much if it's possible as it's if it's desireable, I think.

But what if you move the files around yourself? What if you want to  
edit it somewhere else? I don't think doing it centralized is a good  
idea, but let's see what Allan says about it :-).

I kinda thought so at first, but I changed my mind. Nice to be able  
to give people files with artwork in them, and if you have an iPod  
photo etc. it will also show up there. What would you rather, also  
take ID3 info out of the files and stuff it in a database? :-).
