ml_tree prototype

Ive done up a quick tree view thing for the Media Library which is starting to look quite nice. Its purely ML based, so everything is loaded from the ML, which means building the tree requires indexing and consolidating every item into the final tree. Im quite surprised at how well it works though, and will make something out of it eventually.

The great thing is I can have this plugin group on other things as well, such as genres, artists, years etc. Its similar to how mexp does its grouping.

Obviously, this is just a prototype, and is quite buggy. It will eventually have a nice list view with full meta data support, drag,drop, "send to" and other context menu support, explorer context menus etc. I may even allow custom columns using ATF, kinda how the columns ui works in fb2k. But will see how much of a hit to performance that will be.

Once again, this is a prototype,ie. buggy. Dont bother with bug reports or feature requests or 'why wont this work?' nonsense.

Known bugs: Crashes if no results are found from the query, the other edit box does nothing, clicking on song items does nothing, crashes on exit sometimes, very buggy if you change views while it is searching, the scroll bar isnt skinned and occasionally loses ability to be clicked, shows one less item in the view than there should be/ etc

All these issues and more are easy enough to fix, and it will be done overtime.
