    Navigate the tree and play everything that's a child of the node 
that's been selected. It's just like a file manager and very much like
mythvideo or the recordings screen.

    Needs nothing more than cursor buttons and an ok button.

    Depends on nothing that isn't already visible the moment you start
the interface. Requires minimal interaction with the interface.
