Hmm, I haven't really tried coding with the media_list, so I don't know
exactly how things work there, and what these "view" objects are meant to be
used fot, but I have a doubt that this approach is so conceptually nice: the
doubt concerns exactly the problem I've just put forward about the tree /
list duplication: usually the "viewed" playlist is only the once that is
interacted with, and then again: how do you translate moving an item in this
viewed list to the movement in the underlying tree list?

Cheers, J.
