Yeah, my QT coding is pretty much limited to the lines in the patch. ;-)

In addition, I have a long C background and less so C++.  

The idea was to zero left pad the string so that I could sort the table
by the song # column using the default sort routine.  Everytime the
playlist is shuffled the songs are renumbered and sorted by the column

To use the default sort routine I needed the column left zero padded or
I would have to introduce a comparison routine for the sort (QT doesn't
sort numerically by default).  

The sorting is triggered by an option but this zero padding code I left
in irregardless.  

I liked the sprintf idiom you posted earlier the best.
