With some of my playlist stuff in the "merge" branch (it isn't in cvs
yet) adding paths as a criteria to automatic playlists is fairly
trivial. You'll probably want to have it monitor the folder for new
songs - which is something that RB doesn't do (yet).

This will happen when you remove a song, but having it happen when you
add a song is definitely a bug. It also shouldn't happen when you move a
song in a playlist, but I can hazard a guess as to why it's happening.

I've also just realised that one of my unreviewed patches in bugzilla
probably make this worse with automatic playlists - I'd better go take a
look at fixing it.

What exactly do you mean by "song-scroller"?

The merge branch also has a button to clear the filters. Making the
search entry a combo-box, with recent a drop-down of recent search could
be handy.

CVS has (experimental) support for writing tag for MP3 and FLAC files,
I'm not sure on the status of other types, such as oggs, though.
