Calculate ReplayGain metadata

ReplayGain is used to measure the perceived loudness of audio. It allows media players to normalize loudness for individual tracks or albums. This avoids the common problem of having to manually adjust volume levels between tracks when playing audio files from albums that have been mastered at different loudness levels.

ReplayGain values are calculated for the target audio file and written to the metadata of audio file. ReplayGain compatible player can use the information to normalize loudness.
