This is really SWEEEEEEET
If anyone has an iPod shuffle (I do!), and is sick and tired of using iTunes, ml_ipod, EphPod, Vpod or any other program, this will make life very simple
Just copy all your MP3s or AAC files to ANY directory on your iPod shuffle, run the script, and it will automatically create a database on your pod
Read more here: http://shuffle-db.sourceforge.net/

This is a screen shot of what the root directory of my iPod shuffle looks like:

You'll see there's a directory I created called My Music, which has this:

And this is a screen shot after I ran the script:

All files are left "in place"
Not like iTunes, which moves all files into the iPod Control directory, and mangles all filenames, etc., so you can't easily copy them back out.
This program is really the best one out there, as it lets YOU organize the music the way YOU want, with ANY directory structure you may want to keep.
I posted here, because the program is written in Python
