Subject: Re: Request for comment on feature suggestion...

When going out of shuffle mode, it could search the playlist for the next/
prev song, or it could un-shuffle. Im sure that searching would be faster,
although it would need to be able to jump back to the correct position in
the shuffled playlist afterwards.

Going into shuffle is more complex??? i imagine you would need to shuffle
the playlist, or would going to a random position be enough?
