New inspector suggestion (same song, same artist, different year)

I have another suggestion for an inspector that you aren't currently doing: Same song, same artist, different year.

I know it's possible for an artist to do different releases of a song, but in my library it's more likely that I have multiple versions of it, and I haven't tagged the year correctly on some of them.

    I was checking the forum for exactly this. I tend to find it a lot with single- and multiple-artist compilations especially. I realise Phil's request is not new, but if it's still being considered for implementation, a big +1 from me
