ok, so at most you would have to do one extra click which isnt all
that terrible compared to the benefits for everyone else. But that is
a moot point now because I've taken LLoreans suggestion and only open
the .n3u if you select it in the playlist catalog (if this is how you
view your playlists already then it is 2 or 3 presses less anyway).

Currently my patch (not uploaded yet) does almost everything except
add the "insert to current playlist" context menus from the
filebrowser into the playlist viewer.
