Yep, we will want an "Edit automatic playlist..." dialog that pops up a
dialog very similar to the "New" one, except with just a Close button
and a different title.  This shouldn't be too hard if someone wants to
give it a shot :)  Basically you just take a query and set the dialog
contents from it.

It does.  We just have to provide a UI for it.

That is possible, but it's trickier.  You would have to do a full query,
and then drop everything except the top 25 or whatever.  I'll definitely
implement it eventually if no one beats me to it.
