We already have a UPnP plugin, but that doesn't mean we won't consider
replacing it. If your plugin provides the same features, is of at
least the same quality code-wise, and is more actively maintained,
then we'll consider it.

How does your plugin relate to the rhythmbox-gupnp plugin here: ?

We'd want to have both client and server UPnP support in some form, so
without a replacement server plugin, it'd be hard to justify adding
your plugin.

One thing in favour of your plugin is that the libraries you're using
are all part of the GNOME desktop and external dependencies.

On that note, since Rygel has been accepted into the desktop suite,
I'd be happy with a plugin exposing the Rhythmbox music library
through Rygel rather than an in-process server.
