Now playing …

I have a working now-playing script for irssi.
This sounds trivial, since now-playing scripts are available for nearly every MP3 player – IRC client combination, but nearly all of them assume that you use IRC from the same machine that plays your music.
Luckily Tobias ‘camel69’ Wulff wrote amarok_ssh which connects to the host amarok runs on via ssh and queries amarok via dcop. Limitations: You can only run one KDE session per user.
Because my irssi is running in a screen i needed to tweak my ssh-agent screen interaction as described here.
