Having radio stations in playlists is crack imho, I mean, playlists are
queues of songs - and radio streams never end. If you want to 'bookmark'
some streams, we need a bookmark mechanism - but not use vplaylists.
(bookmarks/favorites/whatever are another reason why i think a separate
app would be good, you can do that without introducing clutter).

As for visualization, this is really easy to do - monkeymedia just has a
call that creates a widget with a vis plugin in it for you. And if it
were convenient, we could even make a librb that is shared between the
different apps.
