Bug Description

Inspired from Andreas patch on the mailing list, I have made a patch which is useful for every user with an iTunes library.

Features:
* iTunes support for removable medias from foreign systems
* option for disabling iTunes support in preferences
* iTunes support for Linux
* no segmentation fault when closing mixxx (solution from bug #824171)
* allow "add to playlist, crate and auto DJ"

It was tested with ubuntu natty and a windows iTunes library V.7 and V.9.

It works, as long the "iTunes Music Library.xml" is on the same windows drive as the tracks.
The patch uses the <key>Music Folder</key> for path mapping and assumes that the "iTunes Music Library.xml" is in the parent folder. If this is not the case due to a move on the foreign system, you can edit the entry in the xml file manually .
