If you use hard links, don't delete the hard links, and also monitor
the "farm," then categorization and organization become the same
problem. Edit the id3 tag and the file is automatically moved. Drop
new files into an incoming folder, and then remove them after you
check that they've been put in the right place. But lose no
information if the incoming files were tagged incorrectly.

I'm still thinking about other things, but I like this a lot.

One reason that one may want to preserve the symlink option, as an
option, is that someone may have their music on an external drive.
Seems pretty common.

Apologies for my late-to-the-party catch-up reply,
