According to the bug report you just linked to, you just need a
rhythmbox package that is built with libmusicbrainz3. This is a
distribution problem, not an upstream problem. It's a bit of a shame
that the Ubuntu developers haven't been able to resolve this yet, but
they do have other things to focus on, such as the other two versions
they've released since then and the one they're about to release.

Since you seem to have the skills to build from source, perhaps you
could provide a PPA for people still using Ubuntu 10.10 containing the
updated packages.
