Fair enough. I'll wack your rhythmbox stuff into my tree (I'll put it
on github) and see if I can clean up the UI and config for it. If I
get somewhere I'm happy to push it through review and feedback from
the rb devs.

If I avoid messing with the core files and just concentrate on the
rhythmbox plugin stuff would there be any problems pushing them into
the src tree?

Keeping up to date would then just be a sync issue.

Cool. As I said a problem for later :-)
