I agree, that would be very cool. But I don't see a reason not to try
to support iTunes sharing too if we can. We'd probably have to mention
in documentation that it may not always work of course.

Makes sense, although I think it'd be nice to have some codec
negotiation, so if the server only has MP3s, and the client can play
MP3, the server wouldn't have to transcode.
