For sure - I've got some stuff blogged at
http://undamped.blogspot.com/search/label/gsoc, and my source code is
hosted at http://code.google.com/p/rhythmbox-predictive-playback/.

I was thinking it'd be more appropriate as a separate tarball, as it
is dependent on a third-party library that is rather large (Marsyas),
but I suppose it could just be another configuration option. I can
put it into /usr/local/lib/rhythmbox/plugins, but I'll admit that I'm
having trouble making a Makefile.am that will work with a separate
tarball, as all the examples (other plugsin) that I can find seem to
be intended to be built at the same time as Rhythmbox itself.

Thanks, it seems to be going pretty well, although I'm sure there's
all kinds of strange things that I've done that could be done much
better. Thanks for the help,
