Hi Dunk. I haven't had time to look at your patch yet,
but the approach:

> The approach I've taken is to implement 'music stores'. A store is  
> a source of data and metadata that is hot-pluggable. When a store  
> is connected, I load metadata from it into the myth database (i've  
> taken this approach as it means that stores fit neatly into  
> mythmusic, rather than requiring extensive special case  
> modifications such as those used to support cd's) - this allows a  
> store to be accessed just like the 'local music store' used by  
> mythmusic. In addition, stores provide an interface to allow tracks  
> to be added or deleted.

sounds similar to what Eskil Olsen proposed in #2598
(that I haven't been brave enough to commit yet)
