It perhaps would have been of more use if I'd mentioned this before, but
I think a nice feature would be being able to delete all tracks but the
one selected in a playlist. That way, when you're creating a new
playlist, you can start playing the first file you want, then have it
delete everything other than that file and start adding files as you please.
