What's in the weather-revamp? I was thinking of starting a patch for 
MythWeather so that it would get it's data from the database. Any old script 
could fetch the forecast and fill in the database which would decouple 
MythWeather from the vagaries of the source sites and also allow a script to 
fetch from sources other than msnbc. If MythWeather is going to change 
drastically I'll hold off.
