Actually, imdb.pl /and/ imdbpy got removed from trunk ( 
http://cvs.mythtv.org/trac/changeset/19300 ).  However, imdbpy got put 
back ( http://cvs.mythtv.org/trac/changeset/19315 ) because Anduin is 
planning to make it available with instructions for how to use it 
without violating the IMDb TOS ( 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/dev/356963#356963 and 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/317352#317352 )

So, now, imdb.pl is completely gone (and will remain gone).  imdbpy is 
going to be hard to use without violating the IMDb TOS.
