On the music front I agree.

The android squezebox app is good, a little slow at times, but very
good nonetheless.

I have two squeezeboxes and my lounge frontend (running squeezeslave)
all running synchronised as I type this, and controlling with the
android phone. I could also take the android phone out to the garage
and listen to the same in it's earphones/external speakers using an
app which makes your android phone a squeeze player as well as

In terms of OP's requirements:

     - now playing info
    - select any one of N preset playlists
    - append/replace tracks from library to current playlist
    - LCDproc support
    - lirc support
    - low profile package dependency&  ALSA output (I'm running Mythbuntu

    and would hate to pull in all of Gnome (gstreamer, pulse), not even
    speaking of KDE).
    - Android remote controll App

Yes I can tick all those boxes.

PS you don't need any actual squeezeboxes, you can run the player
daemon on your frontend, the server on your backend, and use the
android app to control it all.
