Weekly Roundup IV

I commited my most fundamental change to the codebase at work so far. I was pretty proud, but late on Friday we found some issues. However, it is nothing that I can't deal with in the scripted portion of the code. Have I mentioned how much I like working in python? :-)

Finally got Amarok Beta 2 compiled and installed on my system. That damn mysql embedded library did not want to link without -fPIC. Instead of waiting patiently, I just forced the CFLAGS on the mysql install. Not as clean as waiting for Gentoo to come up with a better fix in the ebuild but I can at least use the program with fewer bugs.
