Auto tag compilations
bliss should auto tag compilations. I would like bliss to tag every album that has either Various Arist (or some other similar moniker in a defined set) in Album Artist tag with the compilation tag and tag every album that has the compilation tag with the same Various Artists title in the Album Artist tag.

The reason for me wanting this is so that I can get control over all my compilationalbums when I look through my album collection on my music player. If I could tag them all with both Compilation-tag and Various Artists in the Album Artist tag, it would be a lot more user friendly.

As implied by my comment:
> Inferring a COMPILATION tag if the artists are different
We could use the new local album tag sourcing as a way of doing the first part.
I just added correctness checking for compilation. This works in a different way to other correctness checking, in that if the setting is absent, we always look at linked releases anyway. If the linked releases say that this is definitely a compilation, a fix is suggested to change it so.
This is a different solution to that laid out above, which is more of a "derived tag" solution, so I'll keep this open as it might have been that which people have voted for.
