	It's not in core myth or mythmusic yet. If you're feeling adventurous,
you can get a cvs copy of mfd (myth frontend daemon) and mfe (myth
frontend). Read the README's, compile, install, and run.

	These packages will automagically (Rendezvous/zeroconfig) let your Myth
box play iTunes content and let iTunes play mythcontent (music sharing).
Moreover, they'll convert flac/ogg/etc. to wav on the fly while serving
content to iTunes. Mighty spiffy.

	Not for the faint of heart though, as they are still under heavy
development (that's why they haven't been released yet).
