Subject: Re: Feature request: Virtual Playlists
From: Peter Koenig (www.access_at_my-mail.ch)

I think you mean something like a cuesheet support.
Cuesheet's are e.g. used for burning bi audio files in CDRWin.
I would love that, it's especially good for long DJ set's or concert recordings and stuff like this.
there is a plugin for this for winamp (mp3cue) which can be found here: http://guerillasoft.nstemp.com/mp3cue/
is that what you mean?

Than I'd vote for it, too!!!
