AFT watches any file that's in your Collection, so if your podcasts are in 
your Collection, it'll work so far as the Playlist goes.  However, it doesn't 
(yet) do anything with the podcast database code, so renaming a downloaded 
podcast file will cause inconsistencies.  Adding support shouldn't be too 
bad, but I don't have time to do it anytime real soon, and besides I know 
nothing about the podcast code.

Bert -- might this be something you can work on?  Look at the fileMoved, 
fileAdded, fileDeleted (all variations of those) and uniqueIdChanged signals 
from CollectionDB, if you want to give it a try.
