Script to organize a directory containing ogg and mp3 files.

The biggest problem for me, during my tries to organize music files, was the 
choice of the directory structure. Should the directory structure reflect the 
author or the genre or may be the album? I ended up with the conclusion, that 
no ideal directory structure exists. So I wanted different virtual directory 
structures to the same data. Thanks to the symbolic links capability of the 
file systems I use (ext2, ext3, ...) this dream has become reality!

The script gets a list of _data directories, in which the real ogg and mp3 
files reside. The script has to read informations like author, album, genre,  
... from these files and create parallel directory structures, which just 
contain symbolic links (like pointers) to the directories in which the real 
files live.

The goal is to create virtual directory structures, which give different views 
of the data, but without having redundant copies of the files themself.

A version for revisioning can be found here:

Other Software Required:
- It's a bash script and therefore needs a running bash.
- The link structures are created using links on the file system and    
therefore the file system must support them (i.e. ext2, ext3, ...)
- To read the mp3 tags the mp3info tool gets used.
