ogg radios for rhythmbox

This is an old discussion, but wouldn't it be nice to have a
'one-click installer' for mp3 with disclaimer during installation (to
meet home-users that are unfamiliar with apt-get)?

I use the live-cd (for one) as promotion material to users completely
unfamiliar with the wonders of Linux. The most seen fear is that Linux
is difficult. I use Ubuntu to disprove just that:
- I show how easy disks auto-mount (something I missed on the Hoary
Preview Live-cd(!) I hope this is a bug)
- How easy a person can read AND write their documents
- But when it comes to playing mp3 I have to give an Apt-get tutorial.

My Utopia would be to have a dialog pop-up when clicking a mp3-file
(when support is missing) that takes care of the download through

Am I alone on this view?
