Would a patch that implements such be entertained by upstream?  I’m thinking something along the lines of an additional argument to the existing /admin/metadata interface —e.g.

	http://server.example.com:8000/admin/metadata?mount=MyMount&mode=updinfo&song=MySong <http://server.example.com:8000/admin/metadata?mount=MyMount&mode=updinfo&song=MySong>&url=http://myurl.example.com/some_node

Everything from ‘&url=‘ onwards (inclusive) would be optional; if absent, the behavior would be precisely as it is now.
