Tackling the task of sharing more code between list view and icon view
would be useful (maybe post 2.0 (or whatever the version ported to GNOME
2.0 will be called). A while back I was looking at the music view
because I had some enhancements I wanted to add. I wanted to make the
music view more like the list view/icon view in some respects. I had a
picture of it looking a lot like it does now, except for the fact that
the actual list of songs would be like the list view (you could drag
songs into it, right click a track to get a context menu with options
such as play song, remove song from playlist, delete the song file,
etc.). The primary reason I wanted this was so that I could view a
directory of mp3's that I've downloaded and quickly listen to the song,
delete it if it isn't a complete song, etc. I came to the conclusion
that the right way to accomplish this was to make the music view code
more like the list view or icon view.
