Does the Ubuntu One team plan to incorporate a service like iTunes Match into the Ubuntu One Music Store?

I tried to read the wikipedia page about iTunes Match, but I just don't understand what it does. Perhaps you should ask about a feature? Someone bragged about the new AirDrop. I didn't know what it was. Turns out it's something Ubuntu has had for many years. Not everyone is used to Apple-English. – Jo-Erlend Schinstad Aug 1 '11 at 15:08
@jo-erland iTunes Match reads your library metadata and allows you to stream matching songs within the iTunes Store, if a song doesn't match you can upload it. – Uri Herrera Aug 1 '11 at 18:42

There's actually no need.

Stream your music, just ask them to make a web app and I think that'd be it! I don't think Canonical could afford the licences in which Apple can afford for the match service anyway.
