Heh.  All you do is hit 'select', 'menu', or 'info' on the 'Active Play Queue' 
item in that tree, and that'll let you save the playlist.  'menu' or 'info' 
on a playlist name will let you delete/rename it or copy the entries over 
back to the active queue for editing (as opposed to just selecting the 
playlist and having it in the queue).  Playlists can contain other playlists, 
etc.  You can move items around by hitting 'select' on an item in the active 
queue and then using the up/down arrows to rearrange things.  'select' again 
deselects the item.

All that's on the 'Edit playlists' screen from pressing '3' on the playback
