RB deals with files that aren't there by [0.8] removing them from the
library and [CVS] making then "hidden" - so they don't show up, but
still remembers your ratings, etc. Deleting the file _after_ RB has
loaded and checked for it's existence might cause it to display an
error, I'll have to check.

Making it keep playing songs if they get removed from the
library/playlist is fairly simple, and I did make a patch to do that a
while ago; but there was some problem that I don't remember, which is
why I didn't submit it. I'll have to go take a look and see if my
greater experience will now let me fix it.
