How does it handle loss of power? Is it permanently connected to the car
battery? I guess if you made the HD read-only or used journaling whilst its
in the car, it would handle power loss gracefully. You can also get ISO-slot
sized MiniITX cases, possibly this one:

You could even have a mini pc with a WLAN card in the boot, and have a normal
squeezebox up front, connected to the aux input of your head unit.
