Well, first, I believe CoverFlow won't make it to 1.1, since pictureflow
is difficult to map to a QAbstractItemView.

Then, I believe iconView should stays like that since it looks like
Explorer/Dolphin/Nautilus/GThumb default thumbnail view.

However, I believe you are right, a list mode could be fun, especially
to group tracks in album, like itunes9, Zune Player or else, but I
believe that this would be a new view.
