If allowed (I don't know off-hand how the db field is set up), make it
default to NULL, not zero. This style of calculation was proposed a few
days back, but I don't know what came of it. I'd really appreciate
something like this, too. Calculating vbr lengths for my 18k+ songs
just takes WAY too long.
