I plan to add support for storage groups but not until after the main
music screens are converted to MythUI so we can finally get rid of the
old interface stuff.

Adding storage group support is fairly trivial but there are a few
things that make it a little more complicated like being able to read
and write the tracks tags for metadata or covert art, ripping or
importing tracks on a FE and having to move them to the BE storage
groups, the MythVideo hash stuff wont work well with music files where
the tags can change often eg playcount, last played etc., the music
player would need a new  MusicIODevice that supports streaming from the
BE. Probably a lot of other stuff I haven't even thought of yet.
