The superb (if I may say so) efficiency of playlist in Rockbox of course come
with a price.
We only keep a single list in memory, and that list is shuffled when you
select shuffle. When advancing down this list, we have no knowledge at all
about what "original" position a particular index has.
To be able to know that, we'd have to store an additional 16 bit number for
each playlist entry. Quite doable, but not done today.
