Nope, libre.fm's UI doesn't support it, but AFAIK the server is

When the song finishes (or you click "next"), the information is
submitted (if the button is on), and the button goes back to normal.

However, if there's a problem with the connection, then the submission
is stored in a queue. When the connection starts working again, all
queued "loved" songs are submitted.

I've put the new features in the "special" Maemo field, so the notes
should be appearing. However, I only mentioned the "love" feature; not
sure if I can put multiple lines there.
