In theory you can play CDs through slimp3, but I haven't been able to
figure it out, and playing ripped music is much more convenient
anyway. ("tear" makes this pretty easy.)

Note that the mp3-stream-to-software-player approach takes awhile to
respond... mostly because of buffering in the client.  The slimp3, on the
other hand, is very quick to respond, as it uses a custom UDP protocol.
