I'm not aware of any.  You would probably want to use the command-line
interface of SqueezeCenter to do what you want.

I've built a mythplugin for emulating a softsqueeze-type player in
Mythtv (http://sourceforge.net/projects/mythsqueezebox/) and it uses
the command-line interface to pull information from the SqueezeCenter
server.  You can look at that code for information on how access the

I'm currently working on an update to the player that will use the cli
as an optional control for the player, but it will be tied to the MAC
address of the mythfrontend emulating the player.  However, you could
use the same code to control another player if you simply changed the
MAC address used by the cli to that of the player you want to control
(you could use the cli to discover the players attached to the
SqueezeCenter server and create a pull-down list too).  Once the code
is done, you could use that code to build your own plugin.  Keep an
eye on the SVN repository at the site above.
