    Default Sorting by disc when sorting by track to list tracks on each disc in order

    Well, I don't think this is working quite as I had hoped

    In music, drilling down into the out of the box "Album Artist" playlists. In my original feature request, I used this example:

    To listen to any double album (or more, like Wagner's Ring) each disc in the collection has to have a different value for the "Album" field. As an example, I have to have "Album Name [D1]" for the first disc, and "Album Name [D2]" for the second disc. This means that to have any album play all the way through, I have to either create a customized playlist with all of the song in order, or let Disc 1 play through, then change to another playlist, and let Disc 2 play all the way through. to listen to all the songs on a given album in order.

    If I tag all of the songs in a given album with the same Album tag value, I have to renumber them. Say there are 10 songs on Disc 1. I need to renumber disc 2 to start at '11' and so on.

    What would be desired is that when creating any auto-generated playlist, Mezzmo takes the Disc tag into account when properly tagged (or modified in the Mezzmo database directly). So what the result is that I would get is that songs are ordered first by disc number, then by track number. So using Pink Floyd's "The Wall" as an example, the result would be:

    Album Artist --> Pink Floyd --> The Wall

    Disc 1, Track 1, In the Flesh?
    Disc 1, Track 2, The Thin Ice
    ...
    Disc 1, Track 13, Goodbye Cruel World
    Disc 2, Track 1, Hey You
    Disc 2, Track 2, Is There Anybody Out There?
    etc, etc, etc...

    What happens now is if the value for the 'Album' tag is the same across all discs, Mezzmo orders by track number and then randomly, which is not correct (I'd call it a bug myself):

    Disc 1, Track 1, In The Flesh?
    Disc 2, Track 1, Hey You
    ...
    Disc 2, Track 3, Nobody Home
    Disc 1, Track 3, Another Brick in the Wall, Part I

    Mezzmo should absolutely order all tracks first by disc number, then by track number, in any place where the 'Disc' tag is properly populated. It seems as though Mezzmo ignores the 'Disc' tag completely when indexing music. It's really very frustrating, as I have to rename all of my albums as though they are 2 different albums by the same artist, and I can't just click "Play" on double albums, and have the whole album play all the way through without doing a lot of workarounds. This should be REALLY easy to repro and fix.
