Possible to parse tags and split multi-value by custom delimiters?, Use my own "spec" instead of default to split tags into multip

I must admit I have not studied the SDK. Still, I wonder if anyone can answer my questions:

1) Is it possible to put custom code between foobar2000's reading of file tags and insertion of those tags into the "database"? E.g., if I have an artist "Bob vs. Joe", could I write code which would recognize " vs. " and insert into foobar2000 the two artists "Bob" and "Joe", instead of a single artist "Bob vs. Joe"?

2) If not (1), could I define my own %NEWARTIST% variable available in other components e.g. search, facets, by writing a component to do that custom parsing?


I wonder mostly for the sake of m4a tags which don't have official multi-value support in iTunes.

This is possible by implementing a metadb_display_field_provider. Hooking tag parsing for arbitrary formats is not possible.
