I think it is time for another view type in the WPS settings. What I'm thinking
(to appease the most people, while still keeping what you are looking for) is
something like this (XX/XX = playlist position, mm:ss = time):

XX/XX - Artist - Title
mm:ss/mm:ss

The album I think could be just kept in the Player's WPS ID3 Viewer. I don't
know what this display should be called though. Maybe "1 Line ID3", and change
ID3 to "2 Line ID3". If that happens, though, the menu would be re-arranged,
and people's saved settings would come up different the first time they turn it
on with the new firmware (not that hard to reset it to what you want IMHO).
