Clean scraping API
#39
heimdall as a library in xbmc repo would be a good thing in general but not absoultely necessary for me at the current stage. I guess when I have finished the scraper and integrated it into RCB and want to submit this to the official repo this would be the point where it would help to have heimdall in the repo already. In the meantime I could just reference it locally as I do now. But as garbear said, it may encourage others to start working with it.

As far as I have tested it I am quite happy with the current status. I did not run into any bugs or anything like this. But I am just using heimdall as kind of a task processing and threading API atm. And as this it already works wellSmile

For integration in RCB or other clients I guess there are three ways of doing it (or a combination of all three):
1. heimdall as a complete standalone project. Like in your above pseudo SQL statement a client could invoke heimdall via RPC or kind of command line style with some parameters and a defined result set.
2. heimdall as task processing API including scrapers
3. heimdall as task processing API without scrapers

I guess you have no 1 in mind. With my current approach I think I am somehow sitting between 2 and 3. So, if I would start integrating heimdall in RCB today I would simply use the code from scrapegame.py and thegamesdb.py and put it somewhere inside RCB. But I will need a deeper look into all this before I start integrating anything. Chances are good that I will change my point of view on this road.
