Nobody has thought on addressing the real issue. Nobody has thought on how to 
reference playlist item nicely through the HTTP control interface, _not_ using 
the broken-by-design core playlist item identifiers. That's why.

If this was internal to VLC, as is the case with the Qt playlist model, maybe.

But this not only would add another roadblock on the path of fixing this long-
standing design issues, it would expose this issue to outside VLC. Then there 
is no way to *ever* fix this.

No thanks.
