Right, I do like that, but what I'd really want is a way to convert my
search (or browse) directly into an automatic playlist. By using the
current (at least as I see it in 0.8.8 on debian) automatic playlist
feature, I have to re-enter my search.

Here's what I'd like to be able to do:
1) Fire up rhythmbox
2) Multi-select 'The Magnetic Fields', 'The 6ths', and 'Future Bible Heros'
3) Select a menu entry called 'turn browse into playlist'
4) Have my new automatic playlist appear and let me name it 'Stephin Merrit songs'

That would provide a great deal more feedback for the user when creating
the playlist than requiring the use of the current dialog.

If I'm misunderstanding how it currently works, please correct me.
