Sources have a "entry view" which is the track list, an instance of the
class rb.EntryView (which is derived from gtk.TreeView). You can get it
with "view = source.get_entry_view()" and then use it like a normal

rb.EntryView has a method designed for getting the list of selected
entries (remember, there may be more than one) - get_selected_entries().
So you can do things like:

for entry in source.get_entry_view().get_selected_entries():
    do_something (entry)

Thanks for help. I wish I had something like "Rhythmbox API for plugin
