	You can't (easily) just ->hide() them, as they're only the visual part of a 
fairly important set of interlinking data structures. Plus, you can't 
->hide() them because QListViewItem's don't have a hide() method. In the 
short term, please demo a pre-playlist version to the unitiated   :-)

	In the longer term, once I get theme-ability sorted out, you'll be able to 
use different layouts to manage playlists in more visually intuitive (but 
less user-powerful) ways. Stay tuned ....
