[Tutor] : [Slightly OT] Using Python to intercept audio from a program

Hello all,

A week or two ago I sent in a few emails regarding using threads in 
automating conversion between wav's and mp3's using lame.  However, the 
program I use to generate these wav's, Audacity 
<http://audacity.sourceforge.net/> (a great program, btw), can't record 
directly from another program, but instead catches all audio directed at 
the speakers.  Being the person I am, I'm never patient enough to sit 
there and do nothing else while I record these wav's, so I do other 
things in the background.  Unfortunately, with the current setup, any 
sounds generated by these background activities end up in the wav 
files.  So I asked on the audacity-help mailing list whether audacity 
has the capability to record directly from another program, and the 
answer, sadly, was no. At least, not for Windows.  So what I would like 
to do is attempt the same with Python, though right now I have only the 
vaguest of ideas on how to proceed.  If anyone could point me in the 
right direction, I would be very grateful.

Thanks in advance,
