uh. it would be the act of pressing ON while playing such a recording,
then browsing to the opml-file, then playing it.
There are other functionalities some people want to have at their
fingertips that are NOT accessible so easily.

Browsing for the opml-file would then be more work if you got more
casts in one directory, PLUS the fact all casts have the same starting
string in the filename.

There could be a second assignment for mp3-Files to the opml-plugin.
The plugin then had to search for a corresponding (either the same
file name but different extension or even in id3-tags) opml-file so
the browsing-step for the correct opml-file can be dropped. The
opml-file would then be accessed by "ON, RIGHT-HOLD, then selecting to
correct plugin (max 2 clicks)". There you are. No way to do it with
less steps with any other plugin-integration.

uh, wait. It's long press on PLAY, then "Open with", then the list of
taking plugins.
