The library is MusicLobby.375 music.mdb and is not associated with iTunes.
The music itself can be indexed by both MusicLobby and the iTunes application.
David L - You also need to look at it from the other end - if most new music is introduced to your library from iTunes, as mine is, and if the family wants all tracks with them or needs all tracks with them on the ipod devices (as in the case of my daughter with her irish dance tracks), the the centerpoint of the music library should be itunes.
In my case, it is the center point as I have over time imported everything, being it CD, MP3, or iTunes file into iTunes. For me it makes management much easier. I also have seperate directories for MP3 files that I have ripped with various apps, but those directories are also listed in my iTunes app. I have ML 3.75 only looking at my iTunes directory to prevent track and album duplication.
