AFAIR, they're already connected. You just need to implement the set
functions in monkey-media.
The main problem with the tag editing in monkey-media is that the
gnome-vfs semantics are uber-broken, and you can't open a existing file
without truncating it. Suckiness. I lost half my MP3s last year when I
tried that. Then again it should be dead easy to add for local files
