I don't want another frame(!) for the browser to start with (since the
source list is already some kind of browser) - but I would like to have
the browser functionality in a slicker layout. This means I like the
idea - but not the way it is shown in the ui. One solution for this
would be to merge the source list and browser.
It's true - I don't need the browser in the playlist - but it wouldn't
hurt me to have it as long as it would not be a seperate frame.
