That's basically what I meant, I suppose it'd really doesn't make much
difference whether a source fills in the db, or a backend does it. One
(possible) advantage of having backends would be if you moved playlist
load/save to the backend, and then the existing playlist code (any
anything like it) would work irrespective of what backend it was using.

Now that I think about it more I don't know if any players support the
equivalent of automatic playlists, and that would mean you would have to
add flags reporting what criteria the backend playlist-storage
