We could open this to the community. Just like skins, people could
contribute their own scripts. There would be a wider offer, and there
would be no problem for us with the distribution of scripts of dubious
legality/morality, if it was done by third parties.

The only thing to do to install a lua playlist script is to copy it in
the right directory, right? This is not that much user friendly, but
it's doable, we wouldn't need any additional framework.

There was a GSoC about lua scripts. What is it about exactly, how does
it affect this? What's its status?
