Just thought I'd let people know that I added some stuff to the apache
conf file in svn trunk that should let music streaming work.  Basically,
I put in a couple of overrides that disable authentication for a couple
of specific URLs.  I also added an override for those who run MythWeb
over https, since it seems that most music players don't touch https.
That does, of course, mean that you essentially have to run two copies
of MythWeb.
