How long until Airplay baked into the entire OS?

    Does anyone think we'll ever see Airplay built in to the entire OS? Not just from iTunes, but being able to push any sound or video output to the Apple TV?

    I am running the spotify app on my desktop, and right now the only way to stream it to my appleTV/living room speakers is to buy Airfoil. $25 for the app seems like way too much, given the limited use. But it's something that'd be really nice to have built in.

    I'm really hoping to see this also. All I really want (in the short term, at least) is to be able to send YouTube videos from Safari to my AppleTV. My current workflow is this:

    1) "favorite" the video via
    2) log into my YouTube account on the ATV
    3) load my favorites, and watch the video
    4) "unfavorite" the video(assuming that I don't want to keep the video around for future viewing)

    Not very efficient!
