I've attached a patch that makes lastrhythm work with Python 2.5
(elementtree is now part of python itself), fixes the cleanup a little
bit, and makes it show the widget if you turn on the plugin while
already playing.

As with some of the other plugins people have been working on, I think
this could be something a lot of people would like; so once it's got a
bit more polish, it could potentially be one of the "official" plugins.

It would be nice if it didn't block the UI while retrieving the data
from Last.FM, but that would require either pyscrobbler having
asynchronous methods or us enable threads for python plugins. The former
would be nicer, but it means someone has to write them.

I fair while ago I started writing (in C) a plugin to do things like
view your profile, and show a "top 50 tracks" source etc. Using
pyscrobbler would probably make that easier :)
