Makes sense to me.  Perhaps we could gather ideas for what Plugins
should/could do, and where they would need to hook in.  Obviously an
init & shutdown that could install sources or what not.  What else?

I suppose only in the semantic sense.  Disconnecting, to me, seems to
indicate that it could reconnect and return as it was.  If you remove
something, its gone forever.

iTunes itself has a limit of 5 connections at a time/per day (can't
recall off hand).  So, to "play nice" it seems that being able to
disconnect when you're not using the source would be needed (not that
you necessarily /would/, but so that you could).  The disconnect command
could be extended to the ipod source as well, telling the ipod source to
save changes, unmount & eject.

I have several more 'core' type changes that I've developed as far as
the sharing RB's music goes.  Would you just as soon I save those for a
2nd round of patching, or send those along here shortly?
