It depends on the "GNOME guidelines" to follow. If these are the ones
needed to be fulfilled for entering the "Desktop" module set (under the
current/old policy), e.g. six months release cycle, hosted on and using
GNOME infrastructure etc, then I'd guess everything would be fine.

The only change then would be that we'd bless multiple similar
applications. The decision should not be "Rhythmbox *or* Banshee", but
"Is Rhythmbox good enough?" and "Is Banshee good enough?".
