I would really be interested in this as well. Personally I have mpd
(musicpd daemon) running on my backend and use ajaxmp as a
web-frontend. But this means using the computer to always control
music -- sometimes nice, but sometimes just not quite the same as a
remote. I've used softsqueeze before but it just didn't "fit in" with
the rest of Myth.
