Media key lock when running - to stop iTunes launching

Create issue
Issue #56 resolved
Matthew Balaam created an issue

Other Media players on OS X, such as Clementine or Spotify stop iTunes from launching when the play media buttons is pressed. Which I find rather annoying, and something which puts me off Apple that little bit every time it happens, but that's my own issue of course.

In the past I've run a script called MMFix, but this no longer works on Mountain Lion. At the moment I'm using a workaround of leaving Quicktime running, but this seems like overkill.

    my dirty hack: You can unload rcd by launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchAgents/

    old hack from internets: patch rcd binary placed in /System/Library/CoreServices/ by replacing string "iTunes" with smth like "iTunez"

    r2044 should no longer require any hacks (uses the same code as Spotify & Clementine actually)
