That patch Jonathan hacked up looks fine to me. As far tracking
connections - its not all that much harder. When someone connects,
generate a session id (right now its hard coded to 42) and send that to
the client. You wouldn't even neccessarily have to look at the
session-id in all the requests, just the close connection one basically
- though I'm not sure if iTunes even sends that.
Maybe about 2 hours work.
