Adding 86 works easily?

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f2a5912dd58>

I’ve just added this release: https://musicbrainz.org/release/d3a99935-d6df-4b8e-a330-4af16df05a23
Unfortunately, hardly any of the works are in MB and the few that exist are inconsistent and unstructured. I’m not a William Lawes (or anything else :wink: ) expert, but I think this release is fairly authorative. However, I have little appetite/aptitude for adding 86 works (including parents) accurately and merging the few existing manually.
My work-round (since I just wanted to tag my CD) was to amend my Classical Extras plugin to structure the works from the “work: movement” format of the titles (see pic below - the code will be in the next release). It struck me that a similarly simple (?) approach could be used for a script to generate the works (including the parents) in MB. Does one exist or is it within anyone’s capability and/or desire to write one? (I guess the merging will still be necessary, but that should be manageable).
