True, but it can be painful to keep the libraries in sync.  Hopefully
with folder monitoring this is no longer such a problem.

Do you think that users should be allowed to set ratings or delete items
from the library in party mode?

One thing I would find useful is being able to transfer ratings.  In
iTunes I can create an auto playlist to play only songs rated 4 or 5
stars, or tell it to play higher rated music more often.  This makes it
more like a jukebox of hits rather than just random playing of all my
music, including obscure 1 or 2 star songs from some of my albums. If
I'm running Rhythmbox as a different user to use party mode, I think
these ratings wouldn't be picked up.

Does double clicking on a song in iTunes in party mode queue it rather
than play it?  I hadn't noticed that feature, but it's a really good idea.
