I am considering preserving the favourite setting, either through a seperate
status table, or just reading the favourites list into memory when a scan is
done, but will likely never preserve manually edited database info, so manually
update genre's and such will never survive a new scan.
That being said I've begun work on adding in more metadata gathering
so more of that will be auto filled in. And there will be a different
"Unknown" genre for each gametype so that rather than one big Unknown list
you would have UnknownSNES, UnknownPCE, etc etc
