I like the idea of a sync'd mass movie viewing, so I made some
improvements to this script

short list:
- channel is a config option now
- only try to make subs if actually playing and PID is still alive
- movie file selection can now be done from IRC with a SETUP command.
this requires all nodes have the same file layout and file names
- added PAUSE and STOP commands.  STOP has to be called before
switching the movie
- attempts duplicate NICK resolution (not sure this is actually working yet)

Hopefully we can attempt another mass viewing of something sometime.
