I'll pass on that one. I don't think so, not in the general 'Library'
view... but I might be wrong.

Not with a separate thread, as far as I know. For fetching stuff from
the web, though, you can use the GnomeVFS asynchronous methods - see the
Magnatune plugin for some good examples of these.

This is a tricky one; I started looking at binding rhythmdb to Python,
but didn't finish it. There are some varargs methods in there, which are
difficult to write bindings for.

Perhaps writing a different C interface would be quickest, and binding
that? I did see that SWIG[0] has some support for vararg methods, but I
suspect it could be hacky in the general case.
