FS#12104 - Prefill the playlist name when creating a new playlist from the file browser (or from elsewhere)

As it’s not easy to enter text on a small DAAP, adding a new playlist from the file browser took a long time. We had to enter the full name of the playlist from the keyboard.
With this patch, we can still enter text, but the text field is prefilled with the name of the directory, or file, from which the playlist is created.

I updated the patch. It makes sense to prefill the text field only when the playlist is generated from a folder.
If it’s generated from a file, the user will want to add other files, and rarely to name the playlist according to the first file in it.
If it’s already a playlist, as it’s odd to copy a playlist into another playlist, the user will want to add other files or playlists to the current one, and will not want to give to the new playlist the same name as the original one.

I think this looks good but i’d prefer if you’d leave the +1 to when name is accessed, since name!=NULL+1 looks really weird to me

You are right. It was silly!
