[Desktop] Command-line (Unix Console) Spotify App

This is probably only of interest to 1% of the Spotify users out there, but how about a Spotify command line application?  Sometimes I find myself on a machine where for some reason I can't use a GUI, or don't wish to, but would like some Spotify tunes.

Digging through the web API, it looks like a command-line control system could be created, which could interact with a Spotify Connect daemon running playback (similar to Transmission or Pulse's architecture).  The missing piece at this point is the watch-this-space for HTPC / personal setup on the Connect page:

CLI or API, either would be great!
