Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] [RFC] iTunes support

I looked into this briefly a while ago, but didn't get very far.  A
couple things I noticed:

The iTunes source list is actually a tree, and each DAAP share has
children for its playlists and whatnot. I'm not certain but RB might be
using a flat list at the moment, so that might need to be changed. Also,
there's been talk of eliminating the source list entirely, which would
require you to come up with some kind of new UI for accessing DAAP

Since RB uses gstreamer and gnome-vfs, I wondered if maybe DAAP support
should be implemented in one of those rather than linking directly to
libopendaap, but I think I concluded that wouldn't really work all that
well.  Probably easiest to just link libopendaap, but that would be a
new compile-time optional dependency, which is not always desirable.

You should probably consult with the author of libopendaap as well; he
mentioned adding DAAP support to RB himself.
