How Windows Media Player support could be added

Hello,
I have a suggestion for Windows Media Player support in CC.

I had been using LCDSmartie for some time before I found CC. LCDsmartie has a function called $File(filename, linenumber) which simply watches a line number in a textfile.

The NowPlaying plugin (for WMP) available at http://members.fortunecity.com/wilmahoney/ writes the artist & track information of whatever you have playing in WMP to the first line of a textfile. So, I can just use
$file("C:\nowplaying.txt",1)
in an LCDsmartie screen to monitor WMP's activity. It works very well and I would love to see this function in CC. It shouldn't be very hard to add.

Would you please consider adding this in a future version?

Thanks,
~drew
