All of these things are also supported by Rhythmbox.

At UDS, we actually looked hard at the experience of Music players and
playing - and both Banshee and Rhythmbox fared very badly, and we were
quite rude about both of them ;)

The Banshee authors got a list via Jorge Castro, and Rhythmbox authors
will be getting lots of bugs filed for them.

Banshee needs to be demonstrably _better_ than Rhythmbox, right now it's
only merely different.
