Alright, then I won't bother improving on the BeOS playlist anymore
until I switch to the 0.5.0 tree. Which reminds me... how close is that
tree to being considered "ready for public"? When I work on the BeOS
interface, I want to concentrate on just that. Is 0.5.0 evolved enough
to give me no headache during development?

Alright, that won't be a big problem. Thanks a lot for the quick
