For streaming, it's simply reading the magnatune catalog and entering
the URIs into rhythmdb. It's when a user double-clicks on an entry in
the source that rhythmbox used to ask for the username/password combo,
and now just doesn't play the file. So I would assume that it's actually
GIO code now streaming the files.
