I know I am coming to this discussion after ftp-master agreed with
this package being included in main - but still: For many years, we
have had a dozen lastfm-related packages. And yes, some of them are
meant to report ("scribble") what we are listening to our LastFM
profile - But at least, lastfmproxy, shell-fm and lastfm itself work
purely with lastfm-generated music streams. And even if ocassionaly
LastFM streamed a free song (I don't use their service since they
became a for-pay service), it is not controllable/predictable, and the
stream itself is nonfree.
