You're right in that it sounds like a great solution/alternative...
But the problem is that the playlist would need to modified
after each song. And how do we know when the song is finished?
ices knows when this happens, thus it would be fairly simple to 
have ices exit (rather than infintely loop) after it plays.

Hence I am asking for advice on how to patch the ices client
to exit after playing instead of looping, regardless of whether
it is 'advisable' or not.
