As far as I can tell, Jamendo does not have any sort of per-category/tag
streaming.  It seems like the most you can do for a category is 'Listen
to the albums of this page', which just dynamically generates an m3u
that points directly to a handfull of oggs.

I'm not sure of the best way to integrate Jamendo into Rhythmbox in the
short-term (the plugin would be the long term solution).  Laurent, any
ideas ?

We can probably do some pretty cool stuff with this.  I haven't looked
at the API in great detail, but it doesn't look like there is a way to
retrieve album covers?

We have a bunch of new hardware making its way to the colo.  I'll see
what I can do about setting up a ccHost playground in a xen guest once
we get them up and running.
