 As mentioned on the list, here is the (hopefully) final version of the
 patch started on Ticket #1699. I decided to open a new ticket for the sake
 of neatness as #1699 is a bit crazy now!).

 This patch changes the schema of the database as used by MythMusic. It
 splits out the tables into separate songs, artists and albums tables and
 names the tables consistently.

 This split reportedly speeds up loading of music due to the reduced
 communications between the frontend and the db for large collections.

 This also adds a port of mp3Act (a web based interface for music
 streaming) to MythWeb (just visit the music module when not using the
 compact theme). This interface allows full playlist management with the
 ability to create, edit, delete and reorder your playlists.

 This patch is large but has so far been tested by 4 people with success
 (some issues have cropped up concerning MySQL3 support but these have now
 been resolved). It has undergone several revisions in my own SVN mirror of
 the live trunk version to allow for this testing and polishing.

 Some refactoring in MythMusic was also performed to reduce the code
 footprint and duplication (e.g. concerning playlist saving and filling
 lists of artists/albums/genres on 3 separate UI screens).

 For the sake of convenience to the patcher here is the list of commands
 needed to apply this patch:

 svn co http://svn.mythtv.org/svn/trunk/mythplugins mythplugins.schema+act
 cd mythplugins.schema+act
 tar xjf ../binary_files.tar.bz2
 svn add mythweb/skins/{default,grey}/img/music
 svn propset svn:mimetype image/gif
 svn propset svn:mimetype image/x-png
 bzcat ../music_schema_change+mythweb_mp3act.diff.bz2 | patch -p0
 svn add mythweb/skins/{default,grey}/music.css
 svn add mythweb/modules/music/mp3act_*
 svn add mythweb/modules/music/music_handler.php
