Yeah, the idea is to finish first a) & b) and then write the plugin for Totem. 
As for other apps, Joaquim told me he would be interested in writing the Rhythmbox 
plugin, but first he needs an implementation of b) that's more or less stable, 
that was some time ago though I hope he still wants to do it :). Also, he mentioned 
we would prefer to write it in Python but for that we should improve our introspection 
support and see how that works for Python.
