It is more than just basic information. If you use the XML interface of
the slimserver you get a lot of information which you can process in
various ways. I wouldn't worry about bandwith. Compared to the music
data, this will hardly be noticed on your network.

I just started working on a controler for the dahsboard in the next
MacOS X version 10.4 "Tiger".

BTW, there is also a developer mailing list.
