Subject: Custom directory settings

Custom directory settings

        This whole 'directory settings' idea is good, here's how I see
it happening:

        * Settings are stored in a .ini (or something) file
                volume (proportional)
        * Settings can be applied via the file view
        * A settings file named "dir.ini" (or something) is
          automatically applied for all songs in the directory
        * Settings files can also contain specifications for individual
          mp3s (perhaps even globbing)
        * When playing a playlist, apply each song's settings
                apply those like vol, eq
                ignore those like shuffle
        * The master settings file is stored in /.rockbox

        The format might be something like
vol=0.5 #average volume

[big bass.mp3]

[too loud.mp3]
vol=0.1 # who is the moron who encoded this??

        In fact, you could store all possible settings in this (it's
not inconceivable someone would want a different wps for an audiobook or
to show non-mp3s only in their movies directory).
