I would also like a separate library to store home movies, as well as a way to bookmark favourite radio stations, like all other radio apps seem to have. And I agree, the Music library should be just for music files (including when I sometimes need to convert say a movie or podcast file to watch on Apple TV and the converted file gets automatically placed in the Music library)... I do use my iTunes a lot for various media, but there is still room for improvement... maybe also a new name now, like iMedia? :-)

How about multiple computer syncing. It would be great to sync my iPhone 4 to my personal Laptop and Desktop along with my work Mac. It seems on each computer you could add content to the phone like music, movies, and photos. It would also be nice to have a backup on 2 computers. Maybe its in the works at Apple ;)

I think that the next version of iTunes will be iTunes X, not 10, so it could be like Mac OS X and QuickTime X.

From your fingers to the gods' ears, please. I have been so frustrated with my iTunes - its performance, its function (or lack thereof) and limitations that I tried a substitute, and have been paying the price ever since, with missing songs and disappearing artwork, lyrics, and info.

What about adding the ability to play back the audio at various increases in speed like Media player has? It's hand for pushing through audio books more quickly.

I listen to several podcasts at 2x speed on my iPhone, so I'm annoyed that I can't do the same on iTunes. (Workaround, open podcast in QuickTime Player.) I actually submitted feedback on Apple's website about this.

First, as a software developer I always see a red flag beside the phrase "rewrite from the ground up," probably because I've read this: http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/fog0000000069.html

Second, what part of iTunes is slow? It seems quite zippy to me, but then I have a fast machine and seldom use iTunes for encoding audio or watching video. There are occasional progress bars, like when I sync my iPhone and see "Determining gapless playback information," and those can never go fast enough, but it seems like a targeted optimization would be in order, not a complete rewrite.

That said, I wouldn't object if Apple has in fact rewritten it, optimized everything and shrunk iTunes' absurd disk footprint.
