IMHO this would break the anti-ads stuff...

This patch is intended for playlist that would be loaded without any  
entry. This patch works like this

- entry1 skip=no
- entry2 skip=no
- entry3 skip=no

Then entry1 only would be loaded

  - entry1 skip=no
  - entry2 skip=no
  - entry3

Only entry3 would be loaded

With the old behaviour CASE1 was not loading any item which is  
probably not what was intended by the user.

The goal for me was to keep the anti-ads feature, if we would load 1,2  
and 3 in case 1, this would disable the anti-ads feature for all web  
admin that put the skip=no in all entries. However, discution is open  
whether to keep entry1 or entry3.
