Directories are part of the file system, and it shows the true contents
of the hard drive. Playlists are files containing references to files,
possibly from all over the file system, and also possibly non-existant.

I think it is a really bad idea to view a playlist as a directory, since
it would (IMHO) be really confusing.

Just my 0.02.
