Send MusicBrainz IDs in ListenBrainz submissions
I saw some discussion of this in GitHub issue #273, but I am not sure if there has been any update on it.
If playing a file which has MusicBrainz tags already present, it would be nice if they were included when scrobbling to ListenBrainz. That way ListenBrainz can link directly to the known recording / artist for each listen instead of just having the names as text.
Would love for this to be implemented. I tag all of my music with MusicBrainz Picard, which adds these musicbrainz-specific tags.
A lot of my tracks go unmatched by listenbrainz since my artists are usually named the romanized of their canonical japanese names, which I suspect listenbrainz doesn't know what to do with (one could argue they should improve their automatic detection, but perhaps they're being conservative to avoid false matches).
Tracks being unmatched means listenbrainz can't do cool things with a lot of my listens in their upcoming year in music (aka spotify wrapped), which makes me sad.
@jonas I'd be happy to pay you $100 in exchange for an implementation of this - is that something you have any interest in?
Would pay you through paypal ahead of time. No rush on a timeframe except in the vague near future (~1 month) - I've used strawberry without it for years, I can wait a little longer
To be clear, I'm just looking for strawberry to send already existing musicbrainz id tags in listenbrainz scrobble submissions, not to calculate acoustic id fingerprints on the fly anything. I think this github comment has the full list of musicbrainz specific tags which would be of use in track matching.

That would be appreciated, I can probably do it in 1-3 months time. I can't promise sooner, because I have some serious back problems (modic), so sometimes I'm in too much pain to work.
