Solutions to having both mp3 and FLAC versions of songs in the music library:

That is a good way to manage this. Moving files is not so difficult either. Take a copy of the entire structure with the mixed files in, then delete *.FLAC from one, and *.mp3 from the other

Yeap, that is a solution too.

Music playback is my main Kodi use. Improving the music library has been my focus for the last 2 years (almost), and it does some things better than video (which is assumed to have recevied more attention in the past than music, but it is not so clear because other people have worked on music before me). And the player is great with many media formats.
