++ on this request.
Currently - I have to export rhythmbox playlists to file.
Then run a shell script on files to convert them to .m3u
Then launch gtkpod (from livna) to get the playlists onto my iPod.

I really would like to be able to see rhythmbox talk directly to my
iPod. Yeah yeah - the only audio codec that both Fedora Core and iPod
both share in common is wav - but the gstreamer mp3 plugin is easy to
get ahold of ...


What I *really* would prefer though is a common portable device sync
library that is not device specific, that can be built to work with many
devices - so that rhythmbox (or whatever) could use that library and not
care what is on the other end, let the library care. But since that
doesn't exist, iPod support would be cool because iPod is what I have :)
