[Muine] Some thoughts on playlist management

Hi all,

I've always really enjoyed using muine because my listening habits are
very album based, and muine fits my use case very well (I'm sure it
works well more many others too). 

However, for whatever reason, I have a collection of songs that aren't
whole albums. Just random tracks that I liked and picked up along the

The problem that this causes is that the Album list ends up having all
these albums in it consisting of single (or a couple) of tracks. This
means that its harder to find the 'real' albums, plus it can be a source
of disappointment :) For me it would be more appropriate if those tracks
were only to appear in the Song list...

As it is I don't see any good way to fix this problem.. here's a couple
of things I thought of
1) Define an album as having at least X tracks. Clumsy and generally
bad, I'd say.. 
2) Use the 'total tracks' tag. However this is often not defined, plus
it would probably be quite annoying if an album didn't appear just
because you were missing one song (for whatever reason)
3) Define a seperate directory where 'single tracks' are placed.
Although I think its clumsy, and perhaps asks too much from the user, I
personally would be willing to do it..

Does anyone have any better ideas? (I'll admit mine aren't very good :)
