  (I don't know if you've already figured this out or not;  I'm posting
anyway on the off-chance you haven't and are still interested in using the
code-base, or someone else has taken an interest in the topic)

  I'm a little ashamed to say that Pynfo is a big, stinky hack.  There's no
kind of modularity, and only a half-hearted attempt at any kind of "plugin"
interface.  The freshmeat (non-functional) and google capabilities would be
the best example of how to go about this, but they're not done in such a way
as to allow you to not affect the main code with your desired additions. 

  Perhaps a good course of action would be for you to just hack what you
want into the main code and send me a patch, then I can try to refactor both
of our "plugins" into something that resembles an actual plugin interface.
