That's a quite pretty solution Jonathan ;). I'd need this "human"
listing style when playing an album, and checking out the titles in
"track order". I dropped my playlists a couple of weeks ago and now
use only folders for one-disc albums (multiple discs albums have a
main folder and one subfolder for each disc, with a global playlist).
Your solution would be to sort the current playing playlist by track
number or implement an iPod-like DB styled media sorting system ?
Sorry, I did not really caught your idea ;)
