Thanks for this Larry. My own thought is that the script at the moment
is most useful as Willy has set it. A future update may indeed remove
the dependency with python-magic, I have contacted Travis (the
developer of eyeD3) about the actual usage that eyeD3 makes of
python-magic and the full implications of its removal.

Thanks for looking at this,

You think that's air you're breathing now?
