It might require making a lot of SQL queries, incase there is an auto-add option
(thus adding a media to ML whenever its the first time in PL).
In such cases, the playlist thread might slow down a lot, especially when
there are lot of media to be added.
ivoire suggested this, but if such a slowdown doesn't matter, then it would be
better to do it in the playlist thread because there will be one less
i.e. the shared queue which handles such "additions".
