[Rhythmbox-devel] Tagging support idea

I had an idea regarding tagging support (http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=324540) and wanted to get some feedback before I started hacking. (Well, hopefully. Read on.)

Since the core support is already added, we have some UI work to do. I was thinking maybe the UI could be implemented as a (Python) plugin. It'd be a bit more agile, could hook into all the core parts... and I could help work on it. :P

It'd be pretty easy to work on some of the existing ideas--automatic playlists, the properties dialog, and the context menu.

A few questions though:
* Can a (Python) plugin hook into the necessary stuff in automatic playlists to add it as a search criteria? I've never seen this done.
* Can a plugin add <keyword> entries to RhythmDB to save added tags?
* Is there any way to query <keyword> entries? I didn't quite make sense of Doc's comment on the bug; http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=324540#c8.

I'm sure my questions reveal my plugin naivete, but hey, you have to start somewhere. :)
