Attached is my new attempt. 

I've removed the SQL query. I calculate the min/max values for the whole
collection now during the initial load. Shouldn't be much overhead here
since we're looping through all the songs getting metadata anyways... if
I'm understanding things right. I calculate the min/max values for each
playlist when we build that particular list. Values are pulled from the
metadata in memory. Hopefully this extra loop isn't a problem.

This seems to be working fine with my test database, although that
collection is pretty small. If it looks like this approach is
appropriate, I'll apply it to my main system (much more music) and
verify it is actually "smart". ;)
