The benefits are to implement the now-playing stuff (ie. in future patches)
because, at the moment, we can only scrobble songs which have been played.
And the major benefit is to be able to play lastfm radios from vlc. In the
first version, I added two more fields for the ap-key and the secret-key
but j-b was not agree with that.
