This was a very very low priority task for me, python-mpd is roughly one
python file mpd.py. There was only one use-case, i could think about :
an unexperienced developer including it in his "multiplatform" project.
Then, he shares it with his friend under windows (nobody is perfect) and
bang it fails!
Since, this is so controversial, i'll just let them rot on testing, then
end of discussion.


Best regards,
H.
