Reading initial post this was my first thought. And not only there already
is such an application (mpd) but a client for is has been ported to maemo (
http://mmpc.garage.maemo.org/) and it's excelent. I use it every day to
control music on my media server.

So why not just port mpd server component to maemo and be done with it?

There are 5 (five!) web based mpd clients listed on their site and 13 other

In addition meamo is already at, what, 4 - 5 media players? There is so much
stuff out there talented developer like yourself can focus on...
