Can you give a quick summary of what you did?

i'm just finishing up "mythvideo" for video files, and used the mythmusic
as a skeleton, and therefore am using that same slow
method. i'm going to change it to make it cache things and do things
quicker..but if you already have it, i'd rather take it from you.

I've gone from mythmusic taking about 4.5s to start (as reported by time), to just over half a second. A patch will be sent along shortly.
