That was the plan yes, however on further inspection today, it seems as
though they also get sent when you pause the song - I'll try and resolve
that today ...

Probably - although it seems a little overkill to me to have a whole
separate process to simply pass on four strings :)

I appreciate that the patch seems like a lot of code, however the
dashboard-frontend.c code which constructs the cluepacket is exactly the
same as required for the epiphany integration, and I imagine[1] that ths
will go away over time, either into it's own shared library, or by
taking advantage of a standard IPC mechanism, so you should be left with
just the changes to rb-shell-player.c

[1] I havent' actually confirmed that, but I seem to remember reading
somewhere that the dashboard chaps were looking for an alternative to
the current custom IPC
