Well, I'm not so happy about "Playlist" sub-menu.

What do you think about an epiphany-bookmark like behavior? I mean: 
      * Remove Music -> Playlist -> Remove 
      * Remove Music -> Playlist -> Rename 
      * Delete playlists, songs, iradio using Edit -> Delete (when a
        playlist is selected, see ephy in Topic/Bookmark management) [1]
      * Add a (simple) playlist properties page, with just a "Name"
        entry and # of songs or Edit -> Rename... entry 
      * Add the trash icon to Edit->Delete
So we can move "New pl" "New sm pla" "Load" and "Save" to Music menu.

Note that we'll need a Playlist -> Properties action to change smart
playlists criteria, so...

PS: Music -> Quit don't work in HEAD
PPS: Library popup menu (in source list) still use old "Add to ..."

mmmhh "Click once to restart current song, twice to go to previous song"

Oh, yeah.... We can hide it when the library is loaded. I don't think it
could be against HIG no-disappearing-stuff idea.

Or a separate dialog for refreshing, see glade attach


[1] There is one trouble for this behavior: Simple theme use the same
color for all selected items in all lists, so you can't distinguish
what's currently selected. Please compare Simple and Crux themes and

So probably we need a confirmation dialog to remove playlist and iRadio.
