Non-fingerprinting auto-tagger

I downloaded the MusicBrainz database (316 MB compressed), and plan to write a non-fingerprinting auto-tagger on the flight.

Between:
-- directory hierarchy (including dates for albums)
-- track titles (including often the track positon)
-- song duration, in seconds

I bet I can write a really damn good auto-tagger without even resorting to fingerprinting, which doesn't seem to work too well. (At leats iEatBrainz seems to kinda suck....)

There's just so many clues to use from the filesystem alone.

Please tell me somebody's done this?
