Non-embedded artwork only speedy version (do not read any metadata tags at all)
I'm sure I'm a super-outlier. But your competition doesn't support this so thought I'd throw it out there. Got about 5TB of flac albums. It takes a long, long time to scan all those files and read the metadata. For my use case, I'm not interested in any bliss rules that rely on embedded metadata. I just want bliss to check the non-embedded artwork in the album file folders for compliance. It would be a lot faster if bliss could be configured not to parse the embedded tags. The "ignore embedded artwork" option solves half the request. If there was a "ignore all embedded metadata" that would solve the rest. Like I said just throwing it out there. Thanks!
So are you suggesting interpreting release information from folder and file paths?
I guess you could come up with heuristics for this, but I'd be a bit wary about it.
It shouldn't really take _that_ long to just read these files, although I agree writing data can be slow. I'm not showing much empathy here, so maybe I misunderstand just how high a speed you require!
