[Rhythmbox-devel] Copying AAC to ipod reencodes to mp3

I have setup Rhythmbox(0.12.0 on linuxmint and 0.12.3 on archlinux) to
rip cd's to CD Quality, AAC but when I then transfer these files to my
ipod classic 120Gb black(recognised by gtkpod as xB565) they get
reencoded to mp3. Is this really the intended behaviour and if so is
there some easy way to change it? A quick google search reveals
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/rhythmbox/+bug/164265 and
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=508537 which seems to
indicate the problem was fixed a year ago... So I'm probably
overlooking something obvious.

On another node is it possible to use an external hard drive as a
removable media source but in such a way that the metadata is saved in
a database, like an ipod? With 0.12.0 and 0.12.3 making an external
harddrive a removable media source with .is_audio_player requires
rhythmbox to scan the drive every time it is plugged in. However
importing the external hard drive as a regular folder results in slow
startup when the hard drive isn't attached, and lot's of missing file

Many thanks for a great music player,
