I’d like to expose more obviously how this works and also prepare for the idea that we might have more than one playlist, which is allowed with the current design.

Further, having helpers requires to have a generic implementation without the possibility of reusing a previously retrieved object, which would save us quite a few selector dispatches and have VLC behave faster. Obviously, I failed on that in the two spots you pointed and that will be addressed :)
