Is there a practical way to have several distinct music libraries on one device?

It'll work for that too, just create one folder for each database. The downside is you need to reboot to switch databases.

Customizing the tag browser won't require a reboot, so it's probably a better option.

Thanks again for the attention being paid to my query.

I think for now I will start off by trying amachronic's patch (when it becomes available) as I think the time investment for me to get a grip on customizing the tag browser is more than I can handle right now.  I am pretty slow at absorbing a lot of programming details.  I did previously successfully create a tagnavi_custom.config file to hang a small "Custom Genre By…" tree of submenus off "Database->Custom view…", and several months ago I did a bunch of theming for my own personal use, but that all took me a ton of time that I can't afford again right now.

I'm also trying to get a handle on how to use "Select directories to scan" as it seems like it would be a very useful tool for what I'm trying to do with the multiple music libraries, but I can't figure out how to manipulate it to make it specify my choice of directories, and the only documentation I can find on it is two brief forum topics from about ten years ago - neither of which are very enlightening to me.

Haha - now I see how to operate the mechanism of "Select directories to scan", and also the syntax of its resulting setting in config.cfg.  Now if only I could make a shortcut to it...

check out the lua tagnav plugin its less involved than all of that
