I think the url of the file is the most important one. For example you could 
have a constructor like:

MyDataItem(const KURL& url)

and you're ready to go as long as you have implemented all other virtual 
methods. You can have a look at our implementation too if you like:

But beware, our implementation also handles lots of things special to our 
playlist, things you won't have to worry about for a small playlist.

Properties are filled in by various other plugins like the metatag plugin or 
the player itself.
