      Description

      From a chat with kepstin in #musicbrainz-devel I gathered that the only interesting part of the webservice_url really is the `toc=...` part.

      That part can be used in a WS query for fuzzy lookups:
      http://musicbrainz.org/doc/Development/XML_Web_Service/Version_2#discid

      This could be handed to libmusicbrainz or similar as a transparent ID. The user doesn't have to know how it is constructed, but that this is of use as toc parameter to the web service.

      Kepstin would like it because constructing that toc string is "difficult" in C, but I personally think the transparency is the bigger gain here. It's like 5 lines of code.
