PHP server code

This is also a proof-of-concept: an attempt to show how easy it is to develop a musikCube-plugin that uses xml-rpc to communicate with a remote computer. This opens up a whole space of new functionality: playlist sharing, all kinds of website integration, review and cover image searches, ... for some more ideas look at the list of public xml-rpc services at xmlrpc.com.

Here you can download the server scripts for the plugin if you want to see how it's done, or if you want to host this feature on your own website.
