[Rhythmbox-devel] Starting to "future-proof" the playlist editor

G'day everyone,

I've just started doing some work on cleaning up some of the
query-editor code, and also displaying an error rather than quitting
when something unexpected happens. The unexpected situations normally
happen because you've created a playlist in a future version of RB, and
have gone back to an older one which doesn't know how to edit it.

Patches 19 and 20 are what I've done so far, and if you want to actually
see what the error looks like, creating a playlist with
    <like prop="mimetype">id3</like>
in it will give you one (giving all MP3s) that Rhythmbox can handle, but
the editor can't.

It doesn't help in the situation where the back-end doesn't understand
(with new properties/operators), but it's a start.
