[f-req] manipulation of radio station titles

Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

When i use shoutcast.com to add radiostations to rythmbox,
it always (stupidly, they wont change this) a station-count number before the actual title, in the title.

Also, i get multiple entries from the .pls (1 per server for the station).

This results in a very messy station list.

The fix isn't that hard to implement;

0) keep the current raw list as-is, but re-use as the base-list for the next steps;

1) use the "radio station title conversion list" (rstcl) to display a proper list; no dupes, and no messy extra info

the rstcl should be (partially) pre-configured, save-able & loadable (append at bottom), and have a configuration window with these abilities:
- specify rules for pre-aggregate conversion, consisting of rows with the following:
  - (optional) criterium : domain .pls is loaded from (with a special case keyword for "FROM_DESKTOP", which catches at least nautilus plz)
  - criterium : raw title must match some regexp
  - conversion regexp
   - checkbox whether or not to stop processing the next rules if this one hits (on by default).

rule rows must be able to be arranged (top->bottom=priority) by dragndrop plz.

with these rules, all multiple-server stations are aggregated into identical titles.
only 1 entry needs to be shown, but then rythmbox must change a little internally too, to auto-skip to the next server in case of outage.
a (yellow backgr?) statusmsg in a statusbar (see other new bug) would be ideal to notify the user.
after looping through all the stations, continue looping at 1x per 10-20 seconds try.

yes, this is real work, but i believe it'll be well worth it.
