Just wondering: since a directory is essentially a list of files, and
a playlist is also (essentially) a list of files, would it be possible
to use the same directory browser to browse playlists as well? This
would provice a nice, homogenous user interface. E.g., pressing >> on
a playlist would open it as a directory.

This would also eliminate the current limitation of the playlist
viewer that you have to start playing the playlist before you can
browse it.

Just some thoughts...
