Gstreamer does indeed support visualizations and effects via its
plugins.  The Goom
( plugin is
already included in the latest gstreamer release.  The audio backend
(gstreamer, xine) seems like the right place for visualization plugins
as it is the part that would actually process the stream of data used to
generate the visualization.

Unfortunately, I've never used/seen the gstreamer plugins and am not
sure what kind of additions would be necessary to rhythmbox to do so. 
If anyone has any experience using it, I'd be interested to know.
