Right, and that's an important issue, especially if we're going to be
included in GNOME.

I don't like this - the HIG says to allow direct manipulation where
possible, and here I think we can. Why not have clicking on the rating
thingy in the treeview pop up a menu too?

So if we allow direct manipulation (and I think we should), then do you
think it's really going to be common enough to set the rating of a lot
of songs at once to make this menu entry worthwhile?

Hm, maybe. Personally I think we're going to have to get rid of the
tray icon soon anyways; it seems to violate the HIG draft entry I saw.
