Interesting.  So Amarok will automatically sync based on playlists
assigned to devices; automatically transcode to whatever formats I set
per device; and automatically perform space-savings measures if it
finds that i.e. the device supports FLAC but it's now full and there's
plenty of FLAC files on there that could be encoded to Vorbis or MP3?
