This actually relates to something that I was thinking about when refactoring 
the CD monitoring code in mythmusic. In mythmusic we start a thread which 
just polls for changes in the CD which could largely be replaced by hooking 
it into the media-monitor instead.

Right now, disabling automatic handling of media means disabling the media 
monitor entirely. IMHO it would be better if media monitoring was permanently 
on and that instead we just allow users to turn off automatic 
playback/handling of media types.
