  thanks for the patch, it's been applied. However, for the larger
emms-mpd-update.el, I'm not sure I can integrate such a big contribution
if you haven't signed papers giving your copyright to the FSF. As EMMS
is a GNU Project, all its authors have assigned their copyright to the
FSF, so I will need you to do the same if your contribution is to be
integrated into EMMS (which is what would be the best for EMMS users, I
think). Can anybody confirm (or infirm) this?

Of course, if you've already signed papers, no problem :)
