It's always fun answering your own questions. After a little more
investigation, it has become apparent that the server, for reasons of
it's own, is discarding the separate artist and title information that
it has. I suspect that is is because the outgoing mp3 stream has no
way of sending this information, but I don't need it to. I plan on
using this information on the server in xsl files.  I am working on a
patch now to generate the calls to stats_event that would be needed to
preserve this information.
