#914 new enhancement

Dudes, I know Soulseek is dying, but adding this feature could reinvigorate it maybe?

I know you don't have direct control over the slsk protocol, but what if when you searched for music you also did behind-the-scenes searches for a musicbrainz-generated hash of the song title it matches (or have the user resolve ambiguity if there are multiple results). Then

1) other people with Nictone+ can return results for the file (the desired bitrate could be selected based on user preference or "whatever has the biggest*fastest peer pool" 2) that means we can have downloading from multiple sources, which automatically switches peers when they sign off or the connection slows down significantly. the fastest user to download from is always selected automatically.

It would also be nice if user U/L speed was determined by upload speed test, but I guess that's another ticket for another day.
