There are two reasons, why it could be useful to have this:

1) Users like to be able to do wireless sync - there is an app from cydia which costs $9.99 (if I remember correctly) which is very highly reviewed, which is doing only that: providing wireless sync for iDevices and iTunes under Windows and Mac. I am sure there are many users who would not mind having that feature under Linux as well.

2) I have random disconnects when using the USB cable under Linux to sync tracks - it only happens when synching, and the same when mounting via gvfs or ifuse (copying files to the iPod touch works fine, by the way - no disconnects there, only when using gtkpod, banshee, rhythmbox - I haven't tested others yet). It was working when using sshfs (well - sort off - at least no random disconnect). So it could be a kind of "fallback" mechanism.
This task depends upon
