on stdout (of midish), so it should be received on the midish_stdout

they return a list; so 'print [tracklist]' prints the result on
stdout (on the midish_stdout pipe)

hmmm... this seems correct; but you must call waitready() before
calling your code snippet to ensure that midish is ready to accept
input. I mean:

	sendline("print [tracklist]");
	/* you code snippet here */
i hope i'm correct; i don't have my machine to test this. Let me
know if it still not work
