I'm working on LastFM integration for mythstream. Currently it can stream
stations (neighbourhood, recommendations, etc) and fetch and display album
art. Scrobbling and skipping tracks does work - with issues. Before
publishing, I want to resolve those issues, and connect using the new API
(using the old one).
Maybe we can work together on this feature?
