Audacious to Pidgin, Please Respond

I was poking through Audacious plugins yesterday, and it turns out there’s a Song Change plugin that runs user-specified commands when a song starts, a song ends, the playlist ends, or the title changes.

With a little trial and error, I figured out that this command sends the track title to Pidgin‘s status:

m="%n"; purple-remote "setstatus?message=`echo $m | tr '&' '+'`"

After a while, though, I noticed that it was sending (and occasionally leaving up) the stream URL, which in my case includes my Sky.fm/DI.fm Premium username and password… so of course, it’s no longer on.
