Do people really need (to see) the list of many thousands tracks?
What's the point?

If I want to find something - I'll go to search field. If I want to
quickly find particular album - support for cover graphics could be
very handy (type in partial name of the artist and notice an album

If I want player to play the whole library in a random order - I don't
care to have all 10K tracks in a list - I will not trry to scroll it
and find something - I'll minimise RB and go on with daily routine.

Even if iTunes does it (does it?), huge lists are useless.
