Just thought i'd throw this out there, is it possible to have a tag that will show the total time of the current playlist?
We have total time for individual tracks (%pt) and position within playlist (%pp), but I thought putting the total time for the playlist could also be useful.
This task depends upon

Showing the time of the entire playlist would require opening every single file in the playlist in advance to check their durations. The information isn't immediately available.

Fair enough, I just thought I'd ask.

It might be more readily possible using TagCache, there have been a few other advanced playlisting features that have been suggested for such a thing.

 FS#6338  calculates it by opening every file. Not ideal, but still I
find it very useful to be able to get the information.
