This is a collection of small toys and tools for doing various things
to MPD (Music Player Daemon) from the command line. Some of them are
very useful, while others are only amusing.
Some examples of things the mpdtoys can do include moving the playing
song between different mpd daemons on different machines, storing
the state of a mpd daemon and loading it back later, reversing the
playlist, slowly fading volume up or down, stopping playback after the
current song finishes, emulating a skipping record, and editing the
playlist in a text editor.
