The protocol is being updated, by changing a few matters of
syntax.  An old-style command might look like this:

        widget_set screen widget 3 2 "Booger"
And the new syntax allows parameters to come in any order:

        widget_set screen widget -x 3 -y 2 -text "booger"

It's not a big change, but it's enough that clients will have
to be updated.  (and hopefully won't need to be updated again
for quite a while)

The freeamp-dev list should be able to help you with the UI
parts of the code, and I (or the lcdproc list) can help you
with the LCD parts of the code.  :)
