Well, there always external system-level requirements. X Server
running, HAL daemon running, DBUS service running. So, asking for
samba to be running does not look excessive, if you want to share
directories, does it?;)

I do not really care about admin intervention, honestly. I just prefer
to have a single server process on my system, regardless of the number
of users. Also, there are always bad questions "what happens if user
logs out - or disabled by the admins" etc etc.

Well, you definitely know more details than I do, so I am not in
position to argue. I can just _suspect_ that defining proper
system-leve DBUS "server-type" interface could allow rhythmbox, totem
etc provide their collections - and user to "filter" (somewhere in
g-c-c) the collections he really wants to share. But these are just my
vague ideas, they can be nonsense from your experienced POV.

I see:) I wonder, perhaps other gnome gurus around here could explain
