While it's buffering, I get "random" values; but after it has actually
started playing, it tells me how long I have been playing the stream.

Knowing how long you have been playing the stream might be useful (I
don't use iradio much, so I'm not sure), but we should definitely have a
better value when it's buffering - probably how much it has buffered.

Exactly how it works depends on what type of stream it is. Popping up a
bubble when it changes shouldn't be too hard to do.

Yeah, you should probably be able to leave them blank and have RB fill
them in.

I noticed that when updating the default stations - only three genres
have multiple default stations in them. I'm not too sure what to do
about it though.
