Thanks.  I have thought the menu has sucked actually for some time, and
your proposal was very good.  I've implemented it now on the arch
mainline, soon to be synced with CVS HEAD.

I agree.  It's just a little tricky to implement.  If there isn't a bug
open for this, there should be.

Ok.  If you could file a bug about this, that'd be great.

Sounds like a good idea.

Hmmm.  I kind of like how they're separate now.  I don't have a
particularly strong opinion though.

Yep, done.

I agree that the progress bar isn't entirely beautiful, but I would be
against preventing people from using the library while it's refreshing. 
For people who have network disks or whatever, this could be slow, and
it would be nice if they could play music while that's happening. 
Likewise for adding music to the library.
