Hi Christian,

Ices2 has a type of playlist, when it runs a script every time a track 
ends. This script may use values from an sql backend, which sql may be 
used by a website script, thus you can make a dynamic webpage. This is 
what Aaron's script does.

   <param name="type">script</param>
   <param name="program">/path/to/script</param>

If Aaron agrees, we may open the source. This way more people would 
start hacking it. :)

What do you think, Aaron?
