OK, I understand that.

Will Softsqueeze emulate the Squeezebox2/SqueezeNetwork interaction?

I understand it is a bit strange to request standalone operation of
Softsqueeze since it needs a computer to run on.
But for me as a Squeezebox1 owner, it would be valuable to use Softsqueeze
with SqueezeNetwork to get a hands-on feel of the functionality before I
decide to upgrade to Squeezebox2.

Yes, the plan is to allow Softsqueeze to connect to the SqueezeNetwork.
At the moment I am not sure when this functionality will be available.
