I have been using the squeezecenter package from the AUR for running my 
Squeezeboxes at home off my Arch server. It works pretty well and I do 
tend to look after it and update at least every few months.

I could put that in [extra] if folks want. They're up to 7.4.1, so we're 
due for the next round of updates anyway.

Threshold question: Isn't slimserver replaced by squeezecenter? If so is 
there any reason not to dump slimserver entirely and then either a) do 
nothing more, or b) put squeezecenter in [extra]?
