Default sources for new installation
#1
What does the team think about adding some additional default sources for new XBMC installations?

What I'm thinking is basically adding the following browser/auto-discovery sources right off the bat, so that most network file shares can theoretically be accessed without having to actually add a video source. This is something I often see in other video players on Mac OS X, iOS, and Android. (haven't used Windows in a long while):

SMB
UPnP
Zeroconf


You can already test how effective this is by just adding sources with only "smb://", "zeroconf://", and "upnp://" in them. Between those three you can automatically find most of the common servers that our users use, with very little effort.

Users can still remove them and add more specific shares if they wish, and it would only effect new installs. It would be a great user friendly tweak, and help promote XBMC's existing features like UPnP library sharing.
