Automatically recognize itunes URLs and deal with them accor

One way of detecting an itunes URL would be to look for apple.com in the URL and if it's found, then turn on the itunes switch?

The impersonate itunes thing is really only for podcasts that refuse to serve media to anything but itunes. It pretends to be itunes so the server hands back the media.

There's no easy way to handle a real itunes url, though. It involves parsing the data that itunes uses to display a podcast's page in itunes, which changes.
