When rippering a CD with various artists, the disc
title will report "Various" (from cddb). Individual
artist info is shown in the track names of the format
"artist / song".

This info is correctly parsed by CDDB and stored, but
filenames are generated incorrectly. With the original
version 2.6.1, these individual artist fields are
completely left out of the filename.

The enclosed patch uses the artist field of each track
when available or uses the original (disc_artist) field
otherwise.

Thus using "%a" to generate a track filename will
function as desired (and not show "Various" for the
artist name).

NOTE: Reading the code will probably make more sense
than this long explanation.
