Summary0016903: Auto-Tag: Auto-Tag from filename some Masks do not work
DescriptionIn Auto-tag From Filename some masks do not work

As reported by user <Rating> and <Comment> Mask do not work

Note: Additionally some apps uses BPM, Initial key and Energy from Comment field (MixedInKey, Traktor, VirtualDJ, Flow, Mashup) and in teh past it was common for a DJ to Write Down BPM to filename in order to find them easier.
Steps To Reproduce1. Use file that do not have Rating set
2. Add Prefix 100 to Filename
3. Use Auto-Tag From Filename and Add Mask <Rating> (It looks like correctly shown as imported in Preview)
4. Press OK to Auto-Tag
5. Rating is not present in File

Test Note: If you use reverse option to Auto-Organize and add rating to mask MM will correctly create filename with Rating.

There should be an option to either write Rating in the current manner, but also as a five star scale.

Not sure how to handle that unless we redesign <Rating> mask to accept second parameter eg. rating type/mode

For Auto tag from filename I guess we can use either use this approach (but I would rather leave it as is) if read value is =/<5 then use 5 star system.
