Hello Michel,

>> Running the tool gives you an ID and an URL:

I guess I manually patched it version 2.9.3.

In abcde-musicbrainz-tool on line 81, just before the "undef $disc;" I 
added two lines:

     my $url = $disc->submission_url();
     printf("%s\n", $url);

Now I can run the musicbrainz-tool when a disc is not found and get the URL.

This is not as comfortable as J.D. Laub's patch, but only needed minimal 
effort on my side :)
