To the contrary, it seemed horrible to me... I would advocate removing the
media_list_player (never worked properly, never used) and dumbing down the
media_list to the minimum that would enable parsing a playlist file or

In practice, the applications are implementing their "playlist" management
(if they have such a thing) internally anyway, and calling the simpler
non-list media_player APIs.
