Does anyone know of a hack to make iTunes use the information stored in the ID3 RATING tag?

iTunes stores the rating, playcount, and various other information in your actual library database file. iTunes cannot read ratings or playcounts made by other programs. So the only way for you to have such information is to do it all manually through iTunes. iTunes will also store album art in your library file if you have it look up the artwork automatically. I am not quite sure why Apple took this approach with the ratings and playcounts but they did.

Doesn't it read the tags for the rest of the metadata? I guess I was thinking some sort of scripting could copy the values into iTunes?
