- Get tags from filename too

I see the search for lyrics can take place only if Artist and Track Title tags are already present in the file.
Unfortunately, I have often completely untagged files with all the needed information present only in the file name, so it would be nice if Lyrics Finder could also get (at least) Artist and Title from file name too... even with a little help from User!

Just an example: in a folder I have files named like this:

"01 So Far Away - Dire Straits - @320k.mp3"
"02 Money For Nothing - Dire Straits - @320k.mp3"
"03 Walk Of Life - Dire Straits - @320k.mp3

The program should support "meta-tags" like [ignore], [artist] and [tracktitle], so that the User can create a custom template with delimiters, like this:

"[ignore] [tracktitle] - [artist] - @[ignore]"
^ |_| |__|
| | |
Delimiter1 Delimiter2 Delimiter3

which would tell the program that, in each filename:

- everything before the first occurrence of Delimiter1 (" ")shall be ignored,

- everything between Delimiter1 and Delimiter2 shall be used as Title,

- everything between Delimiter2 and Delimiter3 shall be used as Artist name

- everything after Delimiter3 shall be ignored as well

Then, the Search could start... and -BTW- how about writing the values derived from filename to the corresponding ID3 tags, too? :-)

Hope this feature is not too complicated to implement, and it will be present in a future version.

Thank you very much, keep up the good work!
