Hi James!

I like Rhythmbox, there are features that can be found in Rhythmbox
that are not available in Banshee. Rhythmbox is much faster, and has
music visualizations.

I like to ask, you being the main creator of Rhythmbox, do you have
any plans to be less dependent (or not dependent at all) on Serpentine
and Sound Juicer?
