Thanks Alan.  I was pointing out a misunderstanding on his part that
might have been important to him.  In an earlier post he said "I don't
want the code to be accessable by anybody." whereas if he publishes
the script the way he is suggesting then it *will* be accessable by
everybody, and he said that to his knowledge he was not able to browse
the get-iplayer source, whereas he is able to browse it.  It turns out
that he is not worried about others seeing the source, but it seemed
possible from his previous posts that in he wanted to keep it hidden.
