Because there are lots of mpd client libraries for Rust, but most (maybe all?) of them write the same awful deserialization code that more or less looks like this:

let mut track = Track::default();
match key {
    "title" => track.title = value,
    "artist" => track.artist = value,
    "album" => track.album = value,

And I figured just having a small crate that has all the types and does the serde magic for you would be nice for other people as well.

Now you can simply:

let raw_response: Vec<String> = my_mpd_client.currentsong(); // <- this one is from your own code
let track: Track = mparsed::deserialize_response(raw_response.iter());

No more hand-written deserialization logic.

Oh, and its a good learning opportunity for me. Serde seemed like a library I should learn more about.

Youre missing MyFavoriteStruct!

Feel free to submit a PR for it. This is still very much work in progress, but I think we should have most necessary helper functions so that you can just write the struct definition with some serde attributes and be done with it.
