Frankly...I am not really happy with the tray icon in general right now.
The topic of the Rhythmbox tray icon has come up before on, and I think that the general consensus was that in
its current form, it was not using the notification area as it was
designed for.

Showing/hiding the Rhythmbox window seems to be pretty much what the
taskbar is for.

To remotely control Rhythmbox, we could have a "Music Player Control"
applet, which could be more powerful, say by having separate
previous/play/next buttons.

See for example Mark McLoughlin's guidelines:

One thing I do want the tray icon for is to display the song title when
it changes - as an option.  I think this is more in line with the
original notification area goals.
