This is a building block for other hacks. To make ajax apps that
consume shareable playlists there has to be a server-hosted gateway
that converts the XSPF to JSON in order to get around same-domain
restrictions.

Anybody can use this, anytime, however much they want. Caveat emptor
-- you get what you pay for.

JSONP supported.

Nice job gonzo!

I wonder if you remember I made a similar hack at Stockholm MHD:

http://xspfy.com/

It's running again now (has been broken at various times in the past)
and it has the added benefit of handling malformed XML by using the
parser I wrote, falling back to liberal XML handling if needed:
http://github.com/jwheare/xspfparser (MIT licensed if you wanna use
it!)

http://gonze.com/xspfgate/?xspflink=http%3A%2F%2Fgoldenrecord.org%2Fplaylist.xml&jsonp=sadJson
v.s.
http://xspfy.com/json?url=http%3A%2F%2Fgoldenrecord.org%2Fplaylist.xml&callback=lovelyJson

Anyway, I firmly believe in the more the merrier when it comes to
these things, but still. pwned.

It's the scandal of the year!

Who knew XSPF still had such a vibrant and active ecosystem :)
