New Plugin: Import Discogs Genre

For certain kinds of music, Discogs provides excellent genre tags. A new beaTunes plugin now lets you import those genre tags directly via an analysis task. Analysis taskā€”that means that the installed plugin shows up as the last option in the Analysis Options dialog that appears once you choose to analyze some track (similar to the Bandcamp plugin). The code for the plugin is rather trivial and open source. If you are interested in programming I highly encourage you to check it out at GitHub.

How difficult would it be to modify this code to pull down multiple style tags, not just the top voted one? Ideally I would like to pull down the top 3-5 top voted tags for genres. For example, if I ran it on Francis Harris - Lean Back, I would like it to tag it as 'Deep House, Downtempo, Drone' instead of just 'Deep House'.

I have rudimentary java programming experience but none with Maven or Beatunes API.

It's trivial. Please take a look at the source code on GitHub.
