This is already implemented. Since I failed to provide a summary of
the current state of the code:

For each media player device, you can select a set of playlists and
podcasts to sync to the device, and there are also options to sync all
music and all podcasts. These settings are remembered per-device,
stored locally (not on the device).

The sync process works by building a set of tracks that should end up
on the device and comparing that with what's on the device to
determine what to delete from the device and what to copy on to it. If
there isn't enough space on the device, it'll complain until you
change your sync settings so they fit. Note that if you have tracks on
the device that aren't in the library, the sync process will delete

Currently iPods and MTP devices are supported.
