I don't think there's an existing plugin that would serve as a useful
starting point for implementing a UPnP controller in rhythmbox. It's
probably more useful to approach it from the other end - what
capabilities do you want to provide through the rhythmbox user
interface, and how do they fit in?

Rhythmbox currently isn't able to display playback state or use the
main controls for anything other than local media playback, and that's
fairly difficult to change. Can you do something else instead?
