Ok, let's state it this way: there are way too much requests to implement them all in Winamp. For instance, the wishlist
. When something is in the wishlist, it does not mean that it will (ever) be implemented. It just gives the developers an idea of what is asked for. Most of the requests don't even make it to the wishlist (only much-asked for features will be put in the wishlist).
The feature you are asking for demands a lot of coding: it needs a completely new way of storing playlists. Also, if I understand you correctly, it will use the Media Library to get song info. That's a new point of view, regarding playlists. The difference between ML playlists and 'normal' playlists will only increase more. This won't contribute to the (already not that good, in my opinion) Media Library integration in Winamp.
Off course, it could be 'an option', but it's just not a thing a lot of people want, I think, and therefore probably isn't worth the coding.
Besides that, I think it's better to keep Winamp as clear as possible, which would not be the case if a new sort of playlist would be introduced (through a backdoor, as the ML is) while keeping the old one as well.
Maybe there's someone who's willing to code a plugin that could do it.
(that's a great feature of Winamp: you can add features by making/using plugins
btw, a great thing of playlists is that they can be used across programs/plugins etc.
If i make a playlist in the playlist editor, the ML will be able to read it, so does Dynamic Library (see my sig; it has columns in playlists!! though not sortable
, also, it doesn't store the metadata, so it'll take longer to load a playlist), and so do a lot of other plugins/progs.
This won't be possible with the sort of playlist you suggested.
