Rhythmbox has support for doing that, but it's not currently turned on
for iPods. I'm not exactly sure why though, it may be that we turned it
off when we first added the code and forgot to turn it on.

In theory if it was turned on it should Just Work, but as I don't have
an iPod I can't check. Right now, it will copy any track to your iPod
regardless of whether it can actually be played there.
