Didn't seem like anything needed to be mounted but I restarted the loop
that runs the metadata script and the 'Now playing' bit on the website
seem to be working now.

This would need an initscript to be written to run 'python metadata.py'
on startup and store a PID file so that it can be stopped and restarted
too. I don't have time at the moment so I'm CCing the SUCS devel list in
case anyone's bored of revision/dissertations/life and wants an easy
project ;-)
