Matching to a different song version

Progress on the new version of Jaikoz with release orientated matching is progress well but I came across an interesting problem today.

As well as release matching, Jaikoz has the 'Prefer Do not match to Single Artist Compilations', for those of you who want songs linked to the original release, even if you don't have the original release. I was testing this with songs from Madonnas Immaculate Collection and I was always failing to match songs such as Holiday to the original album Madonna. Turns out it was because the track length differs by a whopping two minutes, 6.11 seconds for the original versus 4.06 and Jaikoz rejects song lengths that vary by more than 15 seconds (10 seconds in current release)

So the songs are clearly different version, and as a general rule we wouldn't want to match them, but I wonder if some of you actually would want to match to this earlier version regardless that you have the later version ?
