Is there any actual advantage in having this?  I've bought mp3s from amazon
(and sampled them first)  without using their player, so I didn't bother.

Dear Anne, it´s not a player. Amazon.com charges one price per individual tracks, and a MUCH LOWER price for a whole album.
The sad truth is that you can´t buy a WHOLE ALBUM unless you use their "plug-in" which just creates a folder and downloads the files there.

Apparently all is to hide the URLs used to store full albums. Probably someone is worried about evil haxxors getting to know their md5sum used to name hidden folders where the full cds are stored, or something along these lines.
