Hi Jonathan,

I'm not sure that's the way to go.

IIUC, Pictureflow is effectively an alternative way of presenting the
database, albeit currently restricted to an Album list (i.e. a fixed query).
In this context it is "merely" a UI replacement for the list. (I don't mean
to downplay it, I use it and like it...)

It would make more sense to me if it were built into the existing database
menus as an option. For example you could navigate Database > Album >
(PictureFlow) for the current list.

(Pictureflow) here is an option akin to (All tracks) and (Random).

This could be extended later to cover any database results that are a list
of albums or tracks. e.g. Database > A to Z > Album > G > (Pictureflow)
might be nice for speed of access.

What do you think?
