And then what? Read the each folder name as we display them? Spinning up the drive every time we scroll the display? Whichever way you go, it becomes an ugly kludge with boring side effects.
The fact is, we are constantly making compromises between battery life and player performance. That's why we have to introduce limits such as max 200 files per dir and max 10000 files per playlist.
However, we are not pigheaded. If you come up with a clever algorithm we've overlooked, we will definitely take your patches into consideration.
Until then, may I suggest you simply organize your mp3 collection? :-)
