The code that was added in version 15222 is probably useful to your

I requested that for my Perl script to make sure that I didn't submit tracks
that hadn't played for long enough...
INSERT INTO settings (value,data,hostname)
'240', 'HOSTNAME');

If you set that db entry when someone enabled last.fm in mythmusic, you
could then hook off of the code which sets the lastplay time to work out
when it is then ok to submit the track (you'd need to also check the song is
longer than a 30second clip).
