use fs xattrs to store song rating and other information
Submitted by con..@..net.de
I think, it would be a nice idea, to check whether the current filesystem is mounted with user_xattr and if so, use libattr to store ratings and other useful information as an xattr attribute. This could then be used as a fallback source if the music file is moved/renamed.
If may even be an idea to store playlist related information to rebuild the rhythmbox database after having restructured your music directories...
Just my 2 cents...
