 An even better approach without item hierarchy duplication is probably to
separate playlist_item_t interface from playlist_t interface, extend
playlist_item_t with reference counting and SD-related fields and use it for
SD as well. Thus a SD module would control directly a tree of
playlist_item_t, which would at the same time be a child of playlist's root

And I think we would profit a lot by having proper garbage collection for
playlist items anyway!
