Thanks for your code, i integrated it to what i had started, but some
things still are missing for the plugin to work correctly.

Would you be interested into working again on this plugin ?

It was very helpful, but for now I don't have so much time to work on
it, i'm planning to work on it later.

What's missing is:
	Parse the server's handshake's answer for errors, md5 challenge and
submit url (does the server's answer always fit in 1024 bytes ?, should
we present error messages to the user in a graphical way ?)
	Hash the user's password with md5 (easy)
	Code the function to submit songs to audioscrobbler (need to know how
to implement timers if INTERVAL is > 0)
