support for compilations


Does Cuetools support encoding of compilations?

By compilations, i mean a cd of multiple tracks by a number of different artists.
In an mp3 file or a specific track, the id tags will have
-  artist tag with the name of the artist
-  album artist tag empty or "Various Artists"
-  the 'part of a compilation tag TCMP is set to 1.
- all files that are part of a compilation will have the same value in the album tag.

I used cuetools to encode a compilation CD into MP3 and Flac files, the compilation flag was not set in the output according to tag&Rename.

I also used dbtools and the flag was set.

Does cuetools support compilations? if so, how please?
Thanks

but no the 'part of a compilation' tag has not been added to CUETools.

Thanks for the reminder. I had forgotten about my previous posting!
Also thanks for adding the request for an enhancement. The difference between then and now is the i am now using flac as well as mp3s with itunes, so the request is more general. I was hoping there was support for flac compilations.
