You'll need to tell me again how to download from arch. :/ I tried the
instructions from a previous message but the arch get didn't work after I
registered the repository.  I better look at the arch tutorial again.

I"ll see what I can do about 2.

I'd like to help on this.  I've been thinking of other ideas for smart lists
that I want to address.  One of them is adding constraints to smart
playlists.  Since getting my pocket pc I've been really missing a feature to
be able to constrain a playlist by a certain size.  So if I want to copy a
set of songs randomly by a certain genre, I want to also add a constraint
that the size not be say 256MB.  Then I want to be able to export this list
to any device I want to.

One feature thats missing is the ability to just copy songs on a playlist to
somewhere.  This should not be hard with gnome-vfs.  But I think it's
something I want to work on, on a private branch. ;)

HIG UI discussions on how achieve the copying should be interesting. ;)
