LastAgent ebuild

I love Last.FM and I have been using Banshee for quite a while for scrobbling. The only issue I have with the plugin is that you cannot love, share, or tag a local music file. You can only perfrom these operations on your music playing from Last.FM itself. Enter LastAgent. It's a small prorgram written in python that adds this missing functionality and it works with multiple media players, including Banshee, Amarok, Rhythmbox, and Audacious. I whipped up an ebuild to install LastAgent and check it out. I'm happy to say that it works as advertised. Here's an ebuild for all you Last.FM fans.

/usr/local/portage/media/sound/lastagent-0.3.02.ebuild

I plan on tweaking this ebuild a little bit but it works well now. It's early still and I had a problem fetching the source with the ebuild for some reason so if you have that problem just download it manually and put it in your distfiles directory for now.
