+beets
+=====
+
+Beets is the media library management system for obsessive-compulsive music
+geeks.
+
+The purpose of beets is to get your music collection right once and for all.
+It catalogs your collection, automatically improving its metadata as it goes.
+It then provides a bouquet of tools for manipulating and accessing your music.
+
+Here's an example of beets' brainy tag corrector doing its thing:
+
+    $ beet import ~/music/ladytron
+    Tagging: Ladytron - Witching Hour
+    (Distance: 0.016165)
+     * Last One Standing -> The Last One Standing
+     * Beauty -> Beauty*2
+     * White Light Generation -> Whitelightgenerator
+     * All the Way -> All the Way...
+
+Because beets is designed as a library, you can easily write Python programs
+that manipulate your music for you. Report tracks encoded at less than
+192kbps? Done. Find albums you're missing from bands you like? Convert
+everything to Title Case once and for all? Done and done.
+
+Beets also includes a music player that speaks the MPD protocol, so you can
+play music in your beets library using a staggering variety of interfaces.
