Support of multiple POPM frames

Would it be possible to support multiple POPM frames to support individual ratings of persons using the same music database?

Ultimately it would be nice to query something like: where rating of PersonA >= 4 and rating of PersonB >= 4.

edit: as I can see in ID3v2 specs this is not provided.

The informal standard ( here) allows for multiple POPM frames.
Isn't that what you want?

Indeed it does and that is exactly what I suggest.

new in 5.7, (by my req), is the ability for a user to specify their own email in the id3 options of the mp3 dll. so in this way, you can at least "mark" your files ratings as yours, and not use the rating@winamp.com default.

but if someone else rates your file with another winamp, their winamps email value will over-write yours.

i would also like to see winamp support multiple POPM frames, so that multiple users can rate the same file. besides supporting multiple POPMs, winamp would also need to know to "prefer" the email in the pref over others that may be present.

CORRECTION, this:

"but if someone else rates your file with another winamp, their winamps email value will over-write yours."

should instead say:

"but if someone else rates your file with another winamp (and different email than yours), their rating value will over-write yours."

i do not yet know if winamp will leave existing email addys in place, but i suspect it does.

btw Ryerman, this new feature means we aren't screwed by mp3tag POPM handling anymore.

It just replaces the rating. The email address stays the same.
