the Freshmeat entry mentions "added the ability to
select the CDDB genre" as one of the recent(?) changes,
but I can't find it in my copy of Grip 3.2.0. I would
also like a %letter for this to pass to my encoder
script, as %cddb-id+%cddb-genre is the best stable key
for an album I know.

    specifically, it would seem that cdplay.c does this:
    ddata->data_genre=7; /* "misc" */
    by default to an un-genre'd disc. then upon submission this
    happens:
    if(!ginfo->ddata.data_genre) { GetDiscDBGenre(ginfo); ... }

    so the only way I can see to ever get a genre selection
    dialog would be to submit disc info without playing the cd
    in the first place, which would be a rare occurence.
