Just to stand up for Charles here:  Throughout the whole Noatun 2 playlist 
rewrite, I gave nothing but positive comments and encouragement.  I 
thought then, and still think now, that the basic design of Playlist now 
is superior.

Yes, you probably saw me saying I was having trouble porting Tron.  Yes, 
that turned out to be difficult.  So difficult in fact, that I ditched the 
whole Tron backend.  That doesn't mean the new way is inferior at all, 
though.  I'm doing fine with Hayes.
