Hi. Yes I have several pending patches. I was ready to commit my bookmark
and playlist viewer patches, and required bits of infrastructure for that.
But I'm in the process of switching jobs and that and other things have
unfortunately kept me from Rockbox for the last few weeks.

As to #6338: playing time: I'd be curious to have comments on this. I
definitely find it very useful, in particular when reading audio books.
Having to open up each file every time is a bit clumsy though. Caching
that info somehow in the playlist code would be cool, but it seems like a
big undertaking. This might be a good candidate for a plugin, but of
course that would make it pretty useless for us blind users, until we
make the plugins talk. Should I commit it as is?
