Well the obvious question is where are the file and media device browsers.

I'm not really sure what I think about the playlist layout, which I
think is really the most radical change. My first reaction is that I
don't like it: would be complicated to customize. Though it would be a
nice way to dodge the whole "column is too narrow to be of use to
anyone" issue.

Anyways what all this is making me realize is that while I do not
think we should make the interface super-customizaable, I think it
would be good as we start Amarok 2.0 to think about how to make the
code flexible enough to allow programmer experimentation with
different sorts of layouts. Just something to keep in mind.
