iTunes gets Blu-ray support?

iTunes gets Blu-ray support? Rumors have been flaring today that the new, upcoming iTunes 8.2 will include Blu-ray support. The evidence, say the reports, is in the new "About iTunes" splash screen.
Currently, Macs do not support BD, and users with external Blu-ray drives need to boot to Windows to use it. If iTunes is allowing ripping and burning of BD however, it could signal that Macs will finally have integrated Blu-ray support and possibly internal drives.

Last year, Apple CEO Steve Jobs infamously called Blu-ray licensing a "bag of hurt," noting it was overly expensive and complicated and that Macs wouldn't be seeing integrated support anytime soon.
