Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] MythTV

We've been discussing this in IRC.  I haven't done the work just yet.  But
the idea is to split rhythmdb from the ui, and then make changes to the 
ui code.

The splitting isn't too bad since rhythmbdb is mostly a seperate
component from the core.  We have no plans to make the backend
a database.  There is some stuff in autoconf to use sqlite backend
and a gda backend.  I think they are disabled though.

The rhythmdb will probably add some dbus stuff so that we can
communicate database changes to interested clients.  The idea I had
when I came up with splitting it was similar to what you're wanting
which is a single database that contains music files for a desktop.
This frees people to write id3 tag editors for large music collections
in an integrated manner as well as new kinds of players (eg tag based)
without having to make rb a completely integrated solution trying to
do everything for everyone.
