What about the 'grouping' field? Where do people use this one for?

Yes. Very much. I often like to listen to music from certain labels.
Sometimes I create special playlists, so that I can listen to my WARP or
Thinner collection.

Actually once the SlimServer can uses a SQL-database it would get easier
to store additional information. But then the SlimServer will also need
quiet a bit of music library management functions, like the requested
tag editor.
