This Myth/amarok hybrid has been suggested several times. I'm a regular
reader of the Amarok mailing list and people have been wanting this to
happen for a long time.

I think we have to think wider and not think about integrating Myth with
amarok or Amarok with Myth, but rather think about rebasing both
projects on a common base with Standards to rule it. Only by doing this
will you get the ultimate solution.

I've posed two other mails on exactly this subject tonight on this list
so I wont repeat it here, please look for my other posts and reply there
for more discussion!
