I agree. I rather like how XBMC does that actually. you can browse
music, hit a button and see the playlist, hit it again and go back to
browsing. To add a track to the playlist while in browse mode you hit
another button, which i think defaults to "0". Similarly to that, and
how shuffle/viz/random are now, things could be mapped to the number

a DJ mode would be great, especially if you can control it via
MythWeb, so you could just have the visualization up on the tv and do
any dj management via a laptop or similar.
