Ticket #1649 (new Task)
"Use parent directory as album name" should not be enabled by default, and needs undo

The option "Use parent directory as album name" should not be enabled by default, also needs either an undo or a prominent warning.
Reasoning: it is now impossible to search one's collection for songs one forgot to tag by album. Moreover, turning off the option does not "uncorrupt" the database. It is also impossible to tell from just the database if an album is actually tag-backed or logically-backed from the directory. This may be architecturally unsound.
Moreover, it might be the case that saving a song's Properties while this option is enabled might write an album name that wasn't intended to be written -- but I'm not sure.
One solution may be to mark albums in the database as "tag-backed" or "logically-backed", and when saving tags to never save "logically-backed" tags or if it *would* be the same as the folder name.
