This is too cool....
How do I specify specific kbps settings for the softsqueeze in the config
file?
Will it support flac?

Great idea! Until now I used slimp3slave to play my music on my server and
Triplefat (http://www.pdos.lcs.mit.edu/~decouto/slimp3/) for plug-in
developpement. Your softsqueeze could replace them both.

Are there plans to have it running _without_ GUI? I'm running slimp3slave on
my server which does not have X installed (nor a keyboard, mouse or
monitor).

This is a nice smooth bit of software, graphics would look great if somebody
could do the buttons as the new remote :) Of course the layout would have to
be horizontal style.
