That's true for the iPod but some players like the iAudio just use a FAT
drive and you can add/remove files from it using raw Nautilus.

OK so that doesn't give you the best experience as right now Nautilus
insists on putting a trash can on the player, and also Nautilus can't sync
two directories together. I started writing an app to do all this but
realised it'd be a lot easier to do it manually, I don't load new music
*that* often ;)
