oh, could it be possible to have this in Frodo/next xbmc release?
Trying to get a consistent look to my skin, I have total movie time, total number of seasons and episodes for the video views so would be nice to have total duration for an album.
most music players have this function so would be nice to have it in xbmc too.

AFAICT, XBMC uses scraped album duration instead of song item count.
This information may be misleading if you have a few songs from that album or if have a whole album, but your album version has 10 songs as opposed to scraped one which contains bonus tracks.
I would expect XBMC to use locally available info and add scraped ones only when local info is not available.
