Spotify, unfortunately, is proprietary.

DeSpotify is a free spotify client: http://despotify.se/

Also, remember http://thelastripper.com/ & last.fm still goes on.

When you illicitly acquire tracks ANYWAY, why bother jumping through 
hoops and reverse engineering Spotify further still...

Also, most people wouldn't want saved Spotify tracks as Ogg format 
doesn't work on their iPods... (Me on the other hand....)
