Thanks, Chris.  Boy, those are some great sites!  I haven't yet found my answer to my original question, but I've found lots of other really interesting stuff.  I'll do some better digging in those sites tonight.

Again, thanks.

ps.  I have learned that Mp3tag can export CSV, and that TkSQLite can import CSV.  So maybe there is a combo of these that will create my ID3 database.

I hope this is a legitimate question for this mailing list.  Given the audience, I figured it was worth a shot.
