    We all know that in theory apple apps are designed to be easy to use and solutions should be simple.
    I am able to move libraries and have multiple libraries etc., but I don't want to do this. I want a simple solution. With the growing amount of HD content, I think Apple needs to come up with a way to archive some of our purchased items, without making it to complicated or having to mess about. Is this solution already there? Does anyone know if anything is planned? What is everyone doing to cope with growing libraries?

    Interestingly enough, non-iTunes users already have this. Look at winamp or Foobar.

    What aspect of a large library are you having trouble with? Is it the amount of scrolling you have to do to find what you're looking for, or it is the size in GB of your whole iTunes folder? Something else?

    A solution already exists. File » Library » Backup to Disc.

    I forget the name, but there is a utility for itunes that can create multiple libraries also.
