I suppose the other question is are you looking for something to serve your podcasts too? Whilst it's not designed for it I guess they're just audio files with tags.
The folder structure ist as following:
./music
./music/artist_a/album_1
./music/artist_b/album_2
./music/compilations/compilation_a
./music/soundtracks/soundtrack_a
./music/audiobooks/audiobook_a
./music/various_artists
./podcasts

The audiobooks and podcasts are just regular audio files with genre-tag "audiobook" or "podcast".

EDIT: If not a single tag, I know you have COLLECTION=1 that could identify your collections, but is there a tag that's always used for podcasts but nothing else?
On all audio files the following tags are used:
ALBUM, ARTIST, DISCNUMBER, GENRE, TITLE, TRACK, YEAR.
Additionaly compilations, soundtracks, and the files in the various_artists folder has the tag COMPILATION=1.

If it is not absolutely necessary, I would like to save myself the trouble of having to tag all the other audio files with an extra tag.

Also, don't you populate ALBUM ARTIST? Browsing by that won't include the artists on compilations (but also not guest artists on regular albums).
Of course I meant COMPILATION=1.
Please excuse the confusion.

The tag ALBUM ARTIST is not used yet.
