This is already being worked on by GNOME Tracker. It's more mature,
it's already part of GNOME (as an external dependency I think) etc.

Mentioned by Alexander below:

This is something that I would like to see done but with a better GUI.
I made some mockups some time ago but received very little feedback.
Currently the plan is to copy the look of the music library for the
video library. I think it can be done better.

There is already an application for that. Tangerine. It uses DAAP
for sharing. It might need some maintenance work since Alex Launi
(lamalex) was the last one that worked on it over a year ago. Perhaps
it would make more sense to give a dbus interface to Tangerine (I
don't think it has one) so that it can be launched from Banshee. Alex
didn't want to make it a Banshee extension because he thought sharing
should be done by a dedicated app so you wouldn't have to run Banshee
for sharing to work.
Perhaps a better way would be to split Tangerine into a sharing daemon
and a GUI. That way Banshee could depend on the sharing daemon and
have a simple GUI for sharing while allowing people to install the
Tangerine GUI if they don't want to use Banshee for sharing.
