ID3 Auto-Tag function

Hello everyone, I guess most of you know iTunes and it's auto-tag features (works pretty much like Winamp's feature), but what you may not know is a plug-in for iTnues called Tune-Up, which helps you fill all missing info (ID3) of your music. anyway, this plug-in has a very good option for filling the missing info called "Try not to tag to compilations".

As you may know or not know, Winamp's auto-tag algorithm tends to recognize songs as part of compilations a lot. Unfortunately, I prefer all songs to be part of the original albums, which is almost impossible to do using Winamp.

I was wondering, what it takes to add such an option to Winamp, and is there any sort of plug-in able to do this?

Thank you!

i for one wish the autotag feature would depend more on the audio fingerprint and less on the tag info it finds. and i don't want it to say something is from something it isn't.

meaning, if i have a song from a comp, i want winamp to say "this was from a comp" i don't begrudge you the option you seek, but it should only be an option.

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing

Of course, that's the all point of it, being an option letting you choose whether you want it to be on or off.
