but my point is thats not the right method to use, b/c the means do not serve the ends, and it would have to change anyway if granularity was ever introduced.

second part first:

it IS the default, but this whole thing is besides the point. i am talking about the now moved file, so that is a NEW instance of the file to winamp, and its not in the ML DB in that case. winamp does not track files or have any awareness that a file in one place used to be a file [aka the same file] in another place.

and regardless, one would have to instigate a rescan / remove missing files and then refresh anyway, so thats all basically moot.

yes, of course the original record of the file would still be in the database, but that [record] has nothing at all to do with a file once that file's moved. once moved, this file is a new file to winamp, and would create a new record (with no relationship whatsoever to the original record) if "rerated" or whatnot.
