I disagree with enabling this by default. Whilst I always use it myself,
the pop-up of the warning was the main thing that put mrs. pondlife off the
use of Rockbox and sent her scuttling back to Apple. Yes, I know it can be
disabled, but it's not an aid to intuition at all - quite the opposite.

(A better solution, IMHO, might be to work through the existing playlist
model and see if we can make it more intuitive. e.g. auto-saving the
dynamic playlist. This is of course a post-release thing!)
