Any chance of letting the vortex scripts call out to python ?
If we did this, then python could handle cool stuff like getting images from morguefile and flickr.
Maybe if the music playing has tags associated with it on lastfm then the python script could go and fetch relevant images using them.
...but first, just need a way of calling out to python (unless you want to implement all of those apis natively in vortex, but that would be silly as people have done all that stuff with python already and we can just use that existing stuff).
I'd imagine vortex could call the python, then the python would apis for all the vortex stuff (creating surfaces etc).
Then can open up the vortex visualisers to all the python coders and get everything nicely internet enabled.
And in the end
We can listen to music and never get bored of the textures in the vis.
- By this time we'd have the beginings of a very cool visualiser

If it can be called the python, it is great, some like j-river media center, I like python.
