Feature request: ignore iCloud and/or Apple Music tracks in Inspect and Analyze

I know there's the option to ignore unchecked songs, but it'd be nice having the ability to ignore tracks that are in the iCloud music library but not local or at least the option to ignore Apple Music

As a rule, I don't download Apple Music tracks, so it's generally the same thing for me.

Since Inspect and Analyze can't really change anything about either iCloud or Apple Music files, it'd be nice to ignore them automatically rather than sorting by location and only analyzing those not in iCloud.

    Hey Evans,

    that's a good suggestion. beaTunes 5 will include an option to exclude what iTunes calls a remote or shared track from inspection and analysis (actually, the analyze all songs action).
