I don't know, it doesn't seem _that_ complicated. (Famous Last Words(tm))

I feel we shouldn't lock up the (ratings etc.) data in Rhythmbox.  Maybe
someone comes up with a central database for different music players or
they want to export data to a portable hardware player.

Technically they could dump it using the sqlite command line client.
Since we already have an XML parser/generator, I don't think there is
much gained by throwing it away.  But I agree it isn't that important.
