Currently, when a file has no "Artist" tag, some value guessed from the file path gets displayed in the "Artist" column of the Audacious playlist.

My suggestion: it should use the value of "Album Artist" tag (when available) instead.

Usage case: a CUE file with PERFORMER stated once at the beginning, and not repeated for each TRACK.

I agree, that makes a lot of sense (and it's a simple change).
