Well, maybe not for your small playlists, but I've got
playlists that run in the thousands of entries. (My ALL_FILES is 9634 songs)

Thats a significant amount of memory overhead for something that probably
wouldn't get used very often.

I'd rather have the randomizer fixed for large playlists -- where only the
first few hundred of the playlist are actually played.
