I don't remember exactly but I tried it something like 7-8 months ago. I 
got it working quite well, certainly not segfaulting everywhere. Only 
bigger issue for me was that it either required "show full music tree" 
option enabled (which I don't use) or that option must be disabled 
(which would be problem for other folks).

If MythMusic UI is to be converted to mythui, this UI limitation could 
be solved at the same time.

Finally I had to drop using the patch because it became too difficult to 
try to maintain it with other changes in MythMusic.

If there is interest to get this patch in, I'm willing to do some 
testing either now beforehand or when it is in.
