I'll work on this for the 2.6 release, after fixing bug 289303.

This will require more work, because we'll have to handle various situations. (tracks already on iPod vs. not yet there etc.)

Complete iPod collection rewrite (also supports iPad, iPhone)

This is a result of 3-month effort to make Amarok iPod-like device
support future-proof and less buggy by using more modern MemoryMeta
framework to manage tracks internally.

The new plugin still uses libgpod [1] to access the devices and
supports all devices supported by it. The newest models may need the
infamous libashab.so library.

 * Small configuration dialog for iPods that shows troubleshooting information
   and allows to change iPod name.
 * Improved usability of iPod playlists: iPod collection automatically transfers
   tracks dropped to iPod playlists to iPod when it is needed.
 * Tracks can now be transcoded when transferring them to iPod.

 * optional libgpod dependency raised to 0.8.2 to support newest iPods.
 * Amarok now prevents accidental unmounting of iPods in (small) time-frames
   when iTunes database on iPod is not yet updated.
 * Amarok detects when iPod is to be ejected from system and gracefully
   disconnects it when it occurs.
 * Hitting the eject button on iPod collection ejects it also from the system.
 * iPod collection now detects whether iPod is safe to write and marks iPod
   as read-only if not. This prevents "iPod shows 0 tracks" problem.
 * Correct progress bar advancement when transferring tracks to iPod.
 * iPod Collection supports multiple simultaneous cancellable transfers.
 * Improved dialog to initialize iPod.

 * Detection and elimination of stale and orphaned iPod tracks now works
   correctly; users are notified about these when iPod is plugged in.
 * iPod playlists now work correctly.
 * Show correct error when transferring unsupported files to iPod.
