One thing to watch out for - this can create automatic playlists that
are uneditable by the current playlist editor (they contain more than a
single subquery).

For an example: select two artists, and then one album - then try to
edit it. Basically it's of the form ((artist=A or artist=B) and

Unfortunately trying to edit a playlist the the editor can't deal with
currently causes RB to throw an assertion and die. I had a patch in my
arch branch that fixed this by displaying an error, rather than
quitting. I should get around to putting that into cvs.
