Since it's looking like someone's going to patch the source for
get_iplayer soon, can I vote for this patch to go in as well?

and I know I can't really vote for my own patch, but there's another one here:

Wouldn't it make more sense to tag the file using the full programme description? Maybe there is good reason why things are the way they are. If not, then I suggest changing the invocation of atomicparsley to use the "desc" field for the "description" tag (and keep shortdesc for the comment). Below is a patch that does this.
