I dont know of any existing things doing this, which is a pity, it would
make for a very effective tool for managing all kinds of large
collections of sound.  There are some metadata-editors for sound around,
but afaik only 'standalone' apps, really not offering much more in
functionality than file-browsers.

One obvious problem in a db-approach is keeping collected info updated
after say moving files around or editing them.

This could be managed by including historic information in the actual
files (version, name, location...) for a 'detective'-script to be able
to keep track of new names, locations or other changes, and keep a db
updated accordingly.  Maybe xattrs already solves this?
