That's okay with me. No problem.

Just a minor point that still needs some tweaking :

When explicitly importing images with the qt4 playlist, 
- regular files are okay
- directories are not.

The difference lies in that regular files are added to the playlist
without any access prefix whereas directories use dir:// that prefixes
filenames with file://

file://image.ext either doesn't work at all (e.g png files) or work in a
very unwelcome manner with a very short display of less than 1 second
(e.g jpg files).

A solution could be to either remove the file:// prefix or be more
specific (fake:// for images, file:// for others) in the directory.c

I proposed a patch for directory.c without success. If someone's got a
better idea to work out this problem, he/she is welcome.
