Not the slightest idea. I hope to have at least the CD device selector
finished, and the audio CD metadata gatherer done, as they are rather
short-term goals. The big "if" is the video widget. I'd need to spend
quite a bit of time on that. Given my current hacking-rate, I'm not sure
that'll be possible.

Colin told me he'd work on the playlist parser (it was some time ago, do
you remember promising me that, Colin? :)

Paolo already has file-roller integrated in the release, having gthumb
as well would be nice.
