    Given 10 httpd's, each one might be streaming something different to 10 different people. Would the RSS feed contain all ten tracks, or something different (such as the next ten tracks it expects to play to one particular person)?

    It's certainly an interesting idea though. Right now I'd settle for better stats from Apache::MP3. Maybe it's time for an Apache::Log::MP3 or something that logs to an SQLite database so you can figure out what tracks nobody is listening to any more.
    • Apache::MP3::Log [perl.org]?

      It is simple, and very specific to my setup, but the principle can be extended in many ways. I've also thought of logging it so that I could do analysis of what I am listening to most, etc.
