Ok, I've upgraded to 6.0.  Pre 6.0, I would sometimes come across inconsistencies in artist names, or album names (and vs &, or In vs in) and I would fix it by editting the tag and rescanning.  My question - now, with 6.0 being DB based, how do I go about fixing inconsistencies like this?

on startup the server goes through a cleanup, removing stale entries and
updating ones with a more recent modified time. browsing music folder should
also detect updated tracks or new tracks.
