One thing that I though of that would be nice is if it could play files
that weren't "audio files" as such, but had audio tracks in them; in
particular I'm thinking of the couple of music videos I have around.

I guess at some point in the future (when RB does visualisations) it
could use the video tracks as the visualisation, but simply being able
to play the audio tracks would be cool.

I don't know whether it would be relative simple, or not, so it might be
harder than I realise.

In the short time I've been playing with it, nothing has broken yet.
Better than I seem to have been doing recently ;)
