RE: max 200 entries in a dir. why?

Why do we have to load the entire folder at once? Can't we just load one
page at a time?
Besides, why do we have to store the whole directory when we're playing the
song... surely we only need to store the DIR instance.

Because each entry takes up about 260 bytes of RAM, and we think this memory
is better used as an MP3 data buffer.

Yes, we can change it, but we don't want to.
