if you change the playlist file (and aren't randomizing), ices will
pick up the changes at the next track. To jump to the next track
immediately, send ices SIGUSR1.

But really, this is exactly what the scripting modules are for. If it
were me, I'd feed the requests into a python module.

Now I gotta get back to the Sox game.
