Same here. When building a manual playlist I always try to keep the
tracks in some order. But even there it is annoying if you have to move
a newly added song from the bottom to near the top of the list.

I would prefer sorting by artist but that's only a personal preference.

I have some trouble to check out from your archive. All I get is:

-=> tla get jrl ids org au--2005/rhythmbox--autoplaylist--0.9 rb-auto
unable to access URL: /~jrl/archive/.listing
webdav error: 302 Found

Any hints?
