Some of the UI has been fixed since the screenshot too :)

Honestly, I think I like having library and iradio in one application; i
mean, they's both "music" that you can listen to.  I like being able to
flip back and forth.  

Right now I guess it doesn't seem like they share that much in common
besides just playback.  But once rhythmbox/net-rhythmbox get
visualization, burning CDs and stuff, it will be nice to have it
integrated, because the interface will be the same for both library,
iradio, and CD.

At least at the beginning rhythmbox' goal was to have all this stuff
like internet radio, cd burning, etc.  It doesn't seem like that's
jorn's highest priority though.

For me it is.
