Hayes should try to defer metainfo determination as long as possible. That is, it should determine it on demand for a given file, when someone asks for it and it should determine the information for all visible files in the playlist.

The latter is not necessary when the playlist is not shown and the sorting mode does not need KFMI (or the mode is random, so sorting is irrelevant).

On demand determination could be implemented by using KMimeTypeResolver, so that the meta information for an item is read as soon as that item becomes visible in the view.

I'd have a look at that when Hayes would be in CVS.
