      Description

      copied from http://bugs.musicbrainz.org/ticket/1993

      Currently, when doing lookups with a MBID, we can use the inc option to set how much information we want.

      That doesn't help me, since my application would be doing lookups by puid's. All I need in my results is the track title, artist name, album name, track number, and the year the album was released.

      This is what libtunepimp used to provide before lookups were removed from it. Currently, by using http://musicbrainz.org/ws/1/track/?type=xml&puid=PUID , I can get all the information I need, apart from the years.

      This makes it impossible to replicate old tunepimp behaviour in a good way. I'd have to get all release ID's from the first lookup, and do one more lookup for each possible album. That's bad for the application responsiveness, and for user's and musicbrainz's bandwidth.
