      Description

      idea for new report: instrument has a instrument credit which matches the name (and/or? non-language alias) of another instrument.

      Reckoning: I've slowly but steadily been adding instruments from requests, and, probably there are now things that could be moved to better places.
      (I've been doing some of these, but my time is probably spent better off adding more instruments and leaving the editing to our glorious userbase)

      Report should show links the recordings/releases with the relationship and the match of other instrument(s)
      f.ex:

      Super Man performed sheng [waterphone] on This REco(r)ding | Waterphone(link)
      The Mayan Blup Foundation performed keyboard [Yamaha] on Lolapalosa | syntheziser(link) (alias Yamaha)

      If aliases are accepted there are a few caveats:
      Might be a good idea to hardcode for known false positives like the french Alto
      Also not to accept partial aliases like eg, Viol Family members have partial aliases for "viola" so and such
