Changing things to use id fields in Artist and Album tables will be difficult until the stable branch and trunk are close to sync'd again.

This is pretty tricky given the condition of the data. We can use mbids to identify accurate artists, albums, and tracks, and for the scrobbles which lack mbids (which is sadly most of them), we can add some intelligence to check for unique artist-track combinations and identify artists that way, hoping that two bands with the same name won't release a track with the same name.

How can we use the brainz data with this?
