I've already got some half-written code for consuming
webservices, which was aimed at displaying your profile and things like
"100 top tracks" etc.

It probably wouldn't be too hard to use it for creating a play order,
particularly if someone else (e.g. Listen) have done the hard work of
figuring out how best to map what AS gives us into track selection.

Hopefully I'll get the code tidied up a bit soon, which would let
someone play with writing a play order if they wanted to.
