Hi Robert,

I don't want to be pedantic, but you can have more than 1 playlist. I 
think a better way of saying what you'd like is: Can we have more than 1 
view of the All My Music playlist? Correct me if I'm wrong....

I've not looked at the tree code for a while, so I can't comment. I 
still finishing off a big patch for MythMusic to support Mix CDs 
arranged by people (e.g. Another Late Night series or the Back To Mine 
series or even just Movie Soundtracks and reguler Various Artist CDs). 
So after I've done that I may take a look at the overhead this may 
present and possibly implement. Implementation should be very simple, 
and I guess if there is a large overhead, it could be a user choice 
protected by an option...
