You would prefer 2 instead?  In theory it should be 2.5 of course, but
partial stars seem to be a bit much.  I think a default of 3 makes more
sense in general on the theory that if you're loading a song into your
library, you will often like it than not.

That makes sense, we should definitely fix that.  Michael, what do you
think?  We could just add a new rhythmdb property that gets set to true
whenever the user manually rates a song, and then just don't change it
from there.

Yeah, that'll happen hopefully soon.  Some of the internals make it a
bit tricky, is the thing.
