File naming structures

I'd like to support as many different file naming structures with Tag's and MPC plugin's autodetection as possible. Currently I have come across to following schemes (%A = Artist, %T = Title, %L = Album, %G = Genre, %Y = Year):

%L -- [%N] -- %A -- %T
%L/[%N] -- %A -- %T
%L -- [%N] %A -- %T
%L/[%N] %A -- %T
%A -- %L -- [%N] %T
%A/%L -- [%N] %T
%A/%L/[%N] - %T
%A/%L/[%N] %T
%A/%A -- %N
%L/%A - [%N] - %T
%L/%A - (%N) - %T
%L/%A - [%N] %T
%L/%A - (%N) %T
%L/%A [%N] - %T
%L/%A (%N) - %T
%L/%A (%N) %T
%L/%A [%N] %T
%A_%L/%A_%N_%T
%L/%A_%N_%T
%L/%N_%A - %T
%A_%L/%A_%T
%L/%A_%T
%A - %L - [%N] - %T
%A - %L - (%N) - %T
%A - %L - %N - %T
%A - %L [%N] - %T
%A - %L (%N) - %T
%A - %L - [%N] %T
%A - %L - (%N) %T
%A - %L [%N] %T
%A - %L (%N) %T
%A - %L/%N - %A - %T
%A - %L/%A - %N - %T
%A - %L/%N- %A - %T
%L/%N - %A - %T
%L/%A - %N - %T
%L/%N- %A - %T
%A - %L/%A - %T
%L/%A - %T
%A - %L/%N - %T
%L/%N - %T

If you use something different please post here.

I usually use:

%N_-_%A_-_%T

I put the albums in subdirectories like:

%A_-_%L-%Y

Anyway, wouldn't it be easier to allow the user to define how the names are supposed to be interpreted than trying to guess all possible scenarios (which is bound to fail in some cases)?  If you already do this, then just disregard that comment

Yes, user has full control over this in Tag, but not in plugin's autodetection. I just want support to be as complete as possible. It speeds tagging a lot when autodetection works.
Btw, your structure is very smart. There is no possibility of misdetection when field separator is that complex.

Yes, %D is CD artist, %C is CD title. The whole thing is "%D - %C (%Y)%N %A - %T".
