the bandwidth for the data wouldnt be much for the database. the streams would use a fair amount if it was busy, but usage is quite low at the moment. the streaming backend was not really relevant for you I guess but I wanted to mention it
. for the database stuff for modland for example you can pull out module name, author, instruments, collections (which could be a playlist, or the name of a game the module is from) and a few other things. this is just generated from the modland filesystem structure. for hvsc, we use the filesystem + the meta data in the sids, + the stil + remix.kwed.org references to link to remixes. I am happy to share the scripts for hvsc/modland etc if you are interested (made in perl).
