My iPod Shuffle shows up as a regular umass and I can mount /dev/sd0e
without problems.  I haven't copied files back and forth from NetBSD so
far, so I don't know if the iPod itself needs some magic to recognize
the audio files you copy there, though.

And, granted, it's not the same as doing the iTunes autofill, though one
should be able to whip up a shell-script that does something similar,
