I dont think this is big enough for gsoc, I'd say much more likely
that this is about the right size (or just too big) for a test project
(it could simply be done by adding another (few) calback(s) to the
list struct which is called to mark an item (de)selected, one to check
if a given item is selected, and lastly one (or maybe the previous
one) which can just be used in a loop to get the next selected item.
the remainder of the work is adding support to the various lists for
this (of which it really is only the browsers and onplay.c)
