Hi All --

I am finally sitting down to try and finish the abcde SlackBuild, but 
I have a couple of questions.

Matteo Bernardini pointed out to me that abcde includes a separate 
helper script, abcde-musicbrainz-tool, that requires some Perl 
'musicbrainz' modules for which there are currently no SlackBuilds. 
On the Debian page for abcde these modules are listed as 

On top of that, some of the modules that the musicbrainz modules 
require have no SlackBuilds, either. So getting this side tool to 
function would require packaging up a bunch of Perl modules 

I am tempted to *not* do this, but to add text to the abcde 
description noting that these things are needed if that script is to 
be used ... but I wanted to check that that was okay. If it is, I am 
all but done with the update for the module.

(I have no problem with the idea of doing it this way and then getting 
to work on packaging those Perl modules, for what it's worth. Of 
course I know I've been pretty slow on abcde).
