Actually, you can do the same exact thing with DAAP as you can with RSP. The difference is the client, and not the protocol. SoundBridge doesn’t load a full index via either protocol. (RSP is, however, more efficient.)
The problem is iTunes as a client is not “search based” like the Roku SoundBridge… and it wasn’t really designed to scale up.
