Great. I'd missed that.

I've already re-written this into a single background thread with a single 
instance of cddecoder, using signals to inform playbackbox/databasebox of 
changes. It works well but I stopped work on it when I decided that the media 
monitor should probably be involved.

I can't see the purpose in having CDDB look up in the mediamonitor myself, but 
it can always been done at some point down the road if there is good reason 
for it.

I don't have a great amount of free time because I've already dedicated most 
of it to re-writing the mythmusic playlist editor, but I can probably spare a 
little to see this idea through to completion.
