Is there an agent which supports multiple edits of a film?

I've been using and liking TheMovieDB for a while.

But I'm getting frustrated that there's no recognition (insomuch as I can find) which lets me assign different edits of a film, such as unendorsed ones, like the Hobbit reduction fan edit, or the Star Wars prequel reductions (de-Jar Jar-ification/Anti Cheese edit). Or the more endorsed ones, like the various Star Wars official releases or the Blade Runner Directors Cuts and Final Cuts etc (none of which are even acknowledged from what I can find).

Ideally, these extra edits would be found as alternative titles. I've managed these using my personal media library, but it would be great to source these from an automated means.

Is there one which would do this?

    Thinking about it, the solution might be to be able to tag individual files which are matched and merged to identify their properties, so when you go "play version" you don't just get resolution and bitrate, but also (or instead) you get a custom title (original, director's cut, cinematic cut, screener, cam etc) and the version length.

    I just split those into different movies and label them accordingly.

    I'd rather a more elegant approach, where Plex can detect and sort these itself.
