I like the idea. I didn't liked to fork for each command, so I started to play
with the library for create a UI. But with a demon like that I guess will be
nicer to use it than to call directly to the library.

Why use stdin? Why not sockets? With them at could be possible to use several 
concurrent clients with the same server.
(I really love moc for play music, and one of its greatest features is that)
