Thought I'd pose this question to the list.  I'm going to write two new 
plugins, eventually, but wanted to see which one people might want to see 

1)  Movie listings.  Zap2it appears to have a movie listing service as well as 
their TV listings. 
( http://docs.tms.tribune.com/tech/tmsdatadirect/zap2it/movies.html )
This lets you put in a zipcode and radius and get back a ton of info on 
theatres, showtimes, movie descriptions, pictures, even URLs to purchase 
tickets or see the offical movie website. 

2) An extended mythweather for the US.  The NWS has several new XML weather 
services which let you get far more data beyond that which MSNBC provides.  
This includes 3-hourly weather forecasts out to 7 days+.  Basically the kind 
of information behind pages like: 


Also, more complete information on watches/warnings/alerts are available in 
XML, like this:


Any ideas or preferences here? Hopefully get this in by the time .16 comes
