Thank you Tom!

  That was exactly what I needed to know. I read the musicbrainz page about the
RDF library going away. It still works, but new development should not use
tunepimp, but instead use one of the newer musicbrainz lookups:


  I will have to have one of the TDE wizards or Calvin help figure out what part
of Amarok will need updating to replace the functionality originally provided by
tunepimp. Amarok builds fine without it, but -- it was there to provide some
functionality to begin with.  Oh the joy...
