My objection to this is that tracks on daap shares can't be persistently stored
in a playlist, since it would store the full URI, with IP address (rather than
share name), session ID, and the non-persistent track ID (rhythmbox doesn't
provide persistent track IDs).  Any of those things can change when you
reconnect to the daap share, and the session ID virtually always does.  It's
less of a problem for the play queue, since that's transient by design.
