Simplify seeking in socket control interface

Description

The current socket control interface requires interaction and interpretation of the response to seek in a program. This could be made trivial by enhancing the seek commands a bit.

I have a Mac OS remote control GUI for Myth, and would like to add some new capabilities.. and I think these updates could be generally useful. http://ignasiak.googlepages.com/mythremote

Current: play seek HH:MM:SS

Suggested: play seek 25%

(I would still need to query the current position if I want to update a slider, but simpler jump interfaces can be done without chatty updates)

Current: play seek backward

Suggested: play seek backward 60

Adding another parameter, the time in seconds to jump, allows for multiple buttons to jump varying lengths to more quickly jump through blocks of commercials
