I started working on this.. but for now I gave up, the build system is pretty horrible. Please test, and comment on what should be changed.

0.6.2 has been out for a while. I've tested the thing a bit, but i'm not satisfied.

There could be musicbrainz support, if only there was a python-musicbrainz2 ( ebuild in tree. There's one over at bug #12607

ssouminen: any reason you keep that rewrite of /usr/bin/listen? It's broken. Pure
python /usr/lib/listen/listen "$@" works for me.

Otherwise i agree with you - that build system is freaky. The app keeps bombing at retrieving amazon cover art, and does not show lyrics. But that we can't fix.

Shouldn't this depend on pyxdg?
It isn't pulled as a dep, but listen won't start without it..
