Hi
I'd like to be able to sync last.fm playcount only for selected file.

Use case:
Let's say I have an album in .mp3 that I've already played lots of times.
Let's say I reencode it in .m4a and add it to my library: unless I'm replacing files for each track individually, which can be very tedious, I will lose all the playcount and last played data.
So, as a fix, I thought syncing last.fm playcount could do the trick.
But if there's a solution for my initial problem, i.e. the ability to replace a whole album files at once, that would be great too.

When I replace albums with a different format, I use the copy tags to clipboard / paste tags from clipboard feature in the Additional Tagging Tools plugin to copy this kind of information from one set to the other in bulk.  You can even have a number of different sets of tags for different purposes.
