I'm going to add my vote to the return of 7.html or some simple way to grab now playing and listener count stats from a DNAS without downloading the full XML. On a station with 1000 listeners, that's one heck of a download every 60 seconds, not to mention the authentication overhead.

Why? I have to log over 850 servers across dozens of hosts/data centers every minute of every day for royalty reports.

When you're pulling listener counts, bitrate and now playing from that many instances as frequently as once every 60 seconds, having a skinny (7.html-type) no-auth file really helps.
