Not really.

The reason for this is that the playlist functions are meant to be viewed as
"hooks" or "callbacks" provided to the firmware by the apps layer.

The firmware can and shall never include files that live in the apps-world.

We could make it the other way around though, so that we have a
mpeg-callback.h (or similar) that defines the protos of the functions
playlist.c need to provide...
