Although I'm not too worried about the extra tray icon, having it built
into RB would stop me forgetting to re-launch rbscrobbler whenever I log
out and back in.

It sounds good to me. I don't know if we have secret
feature-bloat-police, but we have ui-bloat-police - and as this will
just add a preferences pane (ignoring recommendations et al) it
shouldn't be a problem.

For the prefs pane, I think it should have:
 * the enable/disable checkbox and username & password entries, duh.
 * a link to the Information and/or Signup page
 * a link to the Rhythmbox group[0], so people know about it
