	Hi guys ... I'm back ... but probably only for a couple of days (phew, too 
much travel).

	I've gone back and forth on my thinking on default playlists. To move over 
easily from the current situation to one where users can edit named 
playlists, we could just copy the last edited playlist to 
default_music_storage on exit from "Select Music".

	In the longer run, however, I think we want an entry in the settings table 
which just keeps track of the last playlist on a per host (frontend) basis. 
That way the frontend running on the tiny little touchscreen computer next to 
the shelf system is not tied to the last choice in the hacked together front 
end in the basement.

	My 2 cents.
