Perhaps my request is quite simple (on your part): Please make last.fm URL configurable. Then for my FreedomBox dreams, I could run a local app translating last.fm queries into SPARQL requests or Musicbrainz lookups either locally or among friendly FreedomBoxes. > I'm already working on supporting MusicBrainz ID in MPD_sima, but I > can obviously take advantage of these other aspects of MusicBrainz > database.

I don't know MIR, but sounds like the mechanism bahind MusicBrainz IDs.
