    As a user, and not a developer, I think it's easier to put your
entire list in as a playlist- just click the first one, scroll it down,
and press *shift* when you select the last one.  Then, for the ones you
don't want, press *ctrl* while selecting them.

    I'm just hesitant to invoke extra features, if they're not
necessary- that's how Windows got to the way it is, now, with a lower
usability than Linux....everything has extra features.   I understand
the need, I just thing it's easier to tune the list to what you want,
than add another feature, that's all.

    Here, I find it annoying that I can't drag (copy) an entry in one
playlist into that when I come upon a great song for an
"up" mix, I have to actually go hunt it down in the library, not just
drag it over.  But it's not huge...
