"in decending order" should be "in deScending order" I think
It would rock to have a single spin button handling both minutes and
seconds ;)

Actually I don't understand fully your latter proposal (it's probably
obvious when one looks at the code ;), isn't it possible to store the
sort order in the playlist xml file, and skip the gconf key altogether?
Thinking about portable media players and such, the sort order should
probably be totally abstracted away (ie playlist parsers also get the
sort order in whatever way they want, and they create a new playlist and
tell it what sort order to use). Dunno if that's easy to do though ;)

Hope that helps,
