Well, I don't like that.

If you use VLC to play music, for example, and you add an album, you
don't have it flat anymore, which is not really a problem to me...

However, you loose all the functionnalities of sorting by title, author
duration and other metadatas, like you have in current VLC, and many
other media players.

I feel that this is a shame to loose those functionnalities that we have
in the new playlist and return to a less-featured playlist like 0.8.6
