I find the virtual keyboard overly complex to quickly do things. Maybe
the prompt should do something like:

"Your about to destroy you current playlist:

1. Go Ahead
2. Save As "Last Playlist Name"
3. Save As ...."

Which would be a single click operation apart from 3 which would go
through to the virtual keyboard.

That would avoid messing with the existing Non-Dynamic/Dynamic
playlist logic and add it all code to the place where we know a
playlist will get destroyed.
