Questions, comments and concerns about MP3-Boss: MP3 Database and Manager

I am planning to add support for CDG (Karaoke) files -- including auto-unzip, auto-move both CDG and MP3, auto-mark (during scan) that the mp3 includes an associated CDG, and auto-mark (during scan) whether the CDG includes vocals (this assumes that the filename includes a descriptor like 'wvocal' or 'vocal' or such).
If you've selected to scan ZIP files:
Is there any reason I shouldn't automatically unzip the embedded music files from the ZIP? I know this takes a bit more disk space ... but do you care nowadays when a 1TB drive costs $90?
If the ZIP consists of ONLY an MP3 and CDG file -- should I automatically delete the ZIP after unzipping the MP3 and CDG?
I'm sure I can figure out a way around both problems ... but forcing this behavior would simplify my programming. For instance ... if I don't unzip ... then I need to track the ZIP and unzip and send the unzipped song to Winamp. Also...to move the song I'd need to actually move the ZIP.
I am making some reasonable progress on this.
Automatically unzips the ZIP file, and allows either deleting the ZIP or moving the ZIP to another location (either on same drive, or another drive).
If you've enabled the Karaoke plugin with Winzip -- playing the song in MP3-Boss will automatically load the Karaoke plugin (and you'll see the lyrics).
The following information is stored:
CDG found (scans for CDG)
Vocals (assumes the Karaoke is labeled with vocals or wvocals)
ZIP (includes ZIP contents and filesizes)
I haven't yet modified the behavior to auto-move a CDG along with the MP3.
