    Oops. Looks like we all killed it.

    Looks sweet, though. I hope Apple is paying attention, because there is a lot of stealable ideas in Songbird. The DnD media from the web to a local library is going to freak even more music biz people out.

    I’m interested in looking at how they did codec and API support. If you can just plug in a new codec, and have one of the excellent third-party ripper/encoders talk directly to Songbird, that would be an iTunes killer (for me).
