I notice that you use unicodedata.normalize('NFKD' to convert unicode artist or album names before creating a folder name with it. There isn't a standard C++ equivalent, and so although I could do some translation of unicode I wonder if it is necessary or worth it. Your thoughts, or any examples of problems if you don't "sanitize" or "normalise"

IIUC if you use NFKD on Korean Hangul it decomposes each syllable into the corresponding Jamo? That can be helpful for doing searches (find all artists whose strArtist starts with "ㄱ" would find Kim - "김") but it makes for kind of unreadable folder/file names. Don't know how users of accented characters deal with it. Also not too sure on the effect it has on Japanese half-width and full-width forms. I think it might create illegal characters for some file systems.
