I'm not accusing you of saying it makes sense. :)

I'd been thinking about this because there are certain tracks I'd like to begin or end playing after/before the track actually begins/ends in order to skip introductions/spoken parts. (Some light operas I have attach the spoken parts to the end of songs, to faciliate skipping them by skipping to the next song.)

I'd like to be able to add optional startAt, endAt information to playlists, and was figuring that it's most user friendly to allow this information to be input as time, but neccessary to either have a frame offset or iterate through all prior frames for VBR.
