Thanks to the testing by the original poster (discussed off-list), I
think the code is now sufficiently stable. I used it now for some time
and didn't notice any serious issues. It's not yet perfect, but I think
it'd be good if the changes so far could be reviewed, before the
branches differ too much.

My changes are at git://randomsample.de/emms.git for review.  In
summary, they deal with the following issues:

* Exclude videos from being handled by mpd (configurable via
  `emms-player-mpd-ignored-extensions').  While mpd can handle those
  when compiled with ffmpeg support, it can only play sound, so they
  should be handled by other players.

* When calculating song numbers, deal with tracks in a playlist which
  are not handled by mpd but by other players.

* New feature to display playing-time, bitrate, song number and other
  data from a 'status' query.
