  All right. So what about:
- saving the playlist as a m3u file (even if we cannot determine the
  content length from the playlist code) to work on a standard file
- moving as much as possible of the m3u.c file into src/playlist.c to
  avoid code duplication (I know it doesn't perfectly fit with the
  module philosophy, but I believe it's worse to try to use a specific
  module from the core: any suggestion welcome),
- and using this(these) new function(s) from m3u.c to read the input and
  from playlist.c to read a file to be able to adapt the behaviour to
  each case ?

  If it's ok with you, I'll do that tonight.
