Banshee, Rhythmbox, or...

How about my two requirements:
1. Organising of the media library (renaming files/folders etc). (this
one I can live without)
2. 'Score' or 'Skip Count' tracking - In Banshee I have a smart
playlist which automatically ignores songs I skip frequently, so my
random playlist is generated from songs that I listen to more often.
I'm still tempted to give it a good go anyway, but #2 is something I
really love in Banshee.
