Well I took a quick look at things and I downloaded your patch and I
think there needs to be some work done in mythmusic itself to allow
multiple playlists. (Unless I'm missing something here)

Perhaps I should take this over to the devlist but it almost seems
silly to only allow for one playlist. I also think the database should
be changed a little. we need a lookup table that consists of the
playlistid and the songid (intid) we could then drop the songlist
field and have individual entries that would have the playlist that
the song belongs to and then the song itself.

You could then order things however you want. You could even add a
order number field to the lookup table and allow the user to order
their playlists to play things in a certain order. Maybe I'll take a
look at it later but I don't really have all that much free time right
