These all sound pretty reasonable. One thing - buttons like "resume
playback" and "stop" need to function the same in the playlist viewer as
they do in other lists if it's going to more or less transparently seem
like part of the filetree. The question them comes "if I hit Menu in the
playlist viewer, then menu again, should I be back in it as if it were a
folder?" I think if it's going to behave like this it should mimic the
file browser as closely as possible.

Does the playlist catalog have a limit to the number of playlists it can
