Fansub automation

I've finished writing 'BakaTool', a tool that automates the downloading of fansubs. I keep a list of series and fansubbing groups that I want, and the BakaTool downloads the BakaUpdates RSS periodically to check for those releases and downloads the torrent files into the Deluge hot folder.
If I call the script with parameters, I can add or remove group/series combinations. And I added an email interface, allowing me to manipulate the list and even instruct the system to download a certain torrent file directly.

Now all I need to do is to find a way to get a status overview of Deluge through mail. But that is for another day.

The goal, of course, is to keep up with the fansub releases automatically while we're in Japan. Contradictory as that seems, it's not feasible for us to stay up to watch the episodes themselves -- no subtitles, and they're aired really late, most of the time.
