What mp3 player did you get?  I got an iriver 790T, which does have
a driver for it.  Unfortunately, it does not use the USB mass driver
and uses on some other protocol.  Luckily, it should be fairly easy
to write a gnome-vfs driver.

I had thought about integrating it directly with Rhythmbox but after
some discussion decided that it's probably easier to implement it
as a gnome-vfs thing instead.

I would like to be able to create a playlist and do a "Send
to.." type mechanism that will copy data to a generic device.
Generic device would be something that could be identified
as a portable mp3 instead of a usb mass device.

Just my personal opinion.
