Hrm...
I'm pretty sure I've heard of software that can compare music files on a
more fundamental level and tell me if I have duplicates in different
formats. I know for sure there's a graphics comparison program that does
this with images - I've used it once or twice :)

Either way, that's a neat functionality but not really what I'm looking
for. At this point the collection is not so huge that I can't deal with
duplicates manually. The problem right now is that I keep several
collections in one (because sync functionality is very important):

Music/user1/Beatles
Music/user2/Beatles
Music/user3/Beatles
