Well, I agree that they are quite related, but I find your original
proposal quite odd in that case. Why not remove the playlist settings
completely and put them along the playback menu? Looking at the
current state there are only two entries which could easily fit (maybe
rename "recursively insert directories" to "recursively insert into
playlist" -- "warn when erasing dynamic playlist" is already clear
enough to have it as subitem in the playback settings).

Yes, that was done before. I agree that this is a bit side-topic in
this thread, but as it affects the settings rework I wanted to point
to it again as having such a system could also affect the
reorganization due to the changed "appearance" of the menus ;-)

Found your patch: it's FS#8968. I'll attach my thoughts about it to that task.
