New MusicBrainz support

Description

1. Try to get an "official" record title by means of CDDB, using the iTunes Comment CDDB metadata. This is not fundamental, but it can improve things.
2. Perform a query of the release-group.
3. Get all the recordings and filter by track offsets.

      1. Note that the algorithm has been updated and it's now more complex than the above description.

Now the importer works on the whole testsets. Updated stats:

STATS: iTunes-fg-20160504-2=matched: 33/49 (67%) - without CDDB: 3, iTunes-fg-20161210-1=matched: 165/224 (73%) - without CDDB: 4

The new entries still need to be manually validated.

Implemented also the updated queries that first search for musicbrainz entries and then embedded ones. All tests passes and all entries have been manually validated.

There are only three problematic entries:

"Cello Concertos" (Elgar, Dvorak)
3 tracks Dvorak, Cello Concerto in B minor op 104 b 191
4 tracks Elgar, Cello Concerto in E minor op 85

INSTEAD HAS BEEN FOUND AS

3 tracks Dvorak, Cello Concerto in B minor op 124 - Schiff / Sir Colin Davis
4 tracks Elgar, Cello Concerto in E minor op 85 - Schiff / Sir Neville Marriner

"Piano Concerto No. 2 / Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini"
SHOULD BE Rubinstein / Reiner / Chicago
FOUND AS Bernstein

"Piano Concerto no. 2" (Brahms)
TRACKS #1,3 MISSING CONDUCTOR, WRONG ORCHESTRA (Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest in place of Berliner Philharmoniker)
TRACKS #2,4 OK
WRONG CONDUCTOR AND ORCHESTRA

The following ones have probably been wrongly imported, so perhaps they have to be rescanned:

"La Divina 2"
SPURIOUS 1st TRACK

"Ella & Duke At The Côte D'Azur"
2 CDs, 1 embedded, 1 musicbrainz

PERFORMANCE is a problem on the Raspberry PI.

Merged to branch. Remaining issues, if not fixed by the next release, will be moved to a new issue.
