Yeah the adding foreign keys is still going, and when I run top it seems like 
mysql is actually doing stuff with the CPU. I'm most likely going to rerun it 
and hope it works again in a timely fashion.

Alright, will the script pass through the ones already in the database and be 
faster, or would it require the same amount of time?

Do most apps that have been made with imdbpy use the local or web access for 
data? Also what defines public redistribution, what I had in mind was something 
along the lines of having someone input a request for say an actor, and I have 
a script that spits back out a bunch of data/graphs using the imdb info, would 
that be allowed? I wouldn't be making any money off of it, it'd just be a 
webapp tool. 
Once again thank you for the quick response.
