The script is described here:
The script is part of kde-apps. I tried the command line interface
out on a few random artist/titles and it quickly returned the lyrics
to stdout. I would think we could use this without too much trouble.
It appears ruby is the only dependency which I apparently already had
Using the TagLib 1.5 UnsynchronizedLyricsFrame I expect downloading
and saving in the MP3 file would be fairly easy... we'd just need a
bit of user interface.
