this is basically the only feature i've ever requested from an mp3 player, and none of them have done it, but the Dension MP3 car model.

i want to hit a button (or double click?) while playing a song from a playlist, and it will automatically play the corresponding album, and then resume the playlist after it's done.

this could be done by auto-inserting the album into the playlist at the point of the current song...

also, a related feature would be to skip the entire current album.

this feature alone would make Rockbox ROCK!

p.s. i did search through the hundreds of feature requests, and didn't see anything like this, so pardon me if it exists. i also realize there's the "follow playlist" option, but it doesn't quite accomplish the same ease of use, or playlist continuation...?
This task depends upon
