To me most podcasting functionality is orthogonal to what Rhythmbox
does, and podcasting belongs in a separate app (which there are plenty
of - including monopod, which Bastien mentioned).

I'm not sure how podcasts are indicated, but if it's via an ID3 tag or
similar than the podcasting app should deal with that. If it's part of
the database on an iPod, then I guess it something we could supports as
part of copying songs to an iPod.

The only real "support" that I can think of as part of RB is letting the
podcasting app notify us of a new podcast - which is no different then
letting other apps asks us to add something to the library.
