Thank you Dylan for improving pythm -- few days ago I've set up original
version and was pleased to be able to listen to my mp3s from FR.
Now I will give a try to your mods as soon as I get some spare time

I guess it would be great if you expose your development a bit -- did
you start off from SVN checkout of original pythm? may be it is worth
creating a branch in pythm's SVN repository, or at least
publish your development elsewhere? Or may be Matthias would not mind
most of your changes, so they could get in the main line of pythm's

few days ago (right after I've tried pythm) I've asked on pythm's forum
about future developments [1]. Matthias Hans (original author) seems to
be busy with other things, but Paul has expressed his desire to
collaborate and mentioned that he did already some changes of his own.

It would be great to unite the effort, but for that single point of
entry for the source is preferred I guess.

Keep on useful development!
