I also would not like a change in a playlist *file* on disk.

But this whole topic lets me think of how a 'corrupt' file entry
should be treated in general:

It already happened often to me that I renamed a file on the player so
that the corresponding entry in a playlist got faulty (which I didn't think of).
Now what happens if this playlist is played? Am I reminded that some files
could not be found? If not, I may miss these files for a long time. I may
never realize that my 'favourite' playlist is incomplete. I would suggest to
generate an 'error sound' (a beep?) in case that a file in a playlist could
not be opened and played. This would remind the user to cleanup his
