Recommendation -> Use file hash/checksum for database

I noticed that if I relocate any of my audio files to a new location, that all the metadata gets lost.  That includes the hot cues, the beat grid, the analysis, etc.  I assume that the database uses the audio file's location as a key and since that key is being changed, the relationship to the metadata is lost.

How about adding an option to use the file's name + a file hash as a database key instead of the file's location?  That way, should you move the file, all your metadata will remain intact.

Right now I have hundreds of audio files that I wish to relocate but the loss of metadata makes it a pain.
