Actually I use very elegant way of dealing with this problem.
I don't really check if its first/last track, but rather use the fact that
playlist_next can skip directories too. So if its doing that I just
ignore the request for proper forder skip, otherwise do it. This
ensures that directory is always skipped, but only just once.
(consequent folder skip is not affected though).

Well, if you saw the forum thread then you would now that
there are always good arguments why is some cases a
particular method is preferred, so let all users use it for the time
being...
