Glad you like it!

Any speed issues in general have very little to do with XML.

Probably a little, but I think the speed difference there is mostly lost
in the noise.  The real reason Jamboree is probably faster on startup is
that it doesn't refresh your files.  

The reason it is going to be faster on import is that it doesn't
incrementally display the list as it's being loaded.  Personally, I like
both of those Rhythmbox features.

Browsing should be roughly equivalent.  I have had some ideas for
speeding up browsing in rb more (specifically switching back to "All").
