POPM Rating and email, exposed in ini?

winamp correctly follows the id3 syntax standard for POPM (rating) frames, by putting an email, followed by a number for the rating, followed by another number for playcount.

however, the email that winamp puts is the same for everyone:


is this value exposed somewhere in one of the many ini or other config files that govern winamp?

the email value is meant to allow users to differentiate ratings on the same file. it would be neat (and not too hard) to allow users to do this in winamp, but thats not my goal.

i simply want to use a different email to track my files, and also to keep mp3tag from interpreting the POPM frame for me. (ergo i can not use mp3tag to make this change, utterly stupid on their part)

i realize the devs prob wouldn't want to make a pref for this, but if it is, or can be exposed in an ini file, that would be perfect.

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
