    Playlist sanity check request

    Actually, it would be even better to allow the order to be a settable
    option. For example, the way I listen to music, I would find it easiest to
    have:

    'Album' with 'Song' by 'Artist'

    These are issues that can be fixed with a custom skin. The clean look of having
    each item show up in bold, and the prepositions slightly muted, is created by
    the skin.

    The current method of doing this inside server settings would be to use
    titleFormat, but then you end up with the whole thing being treated as a single
    "title" in the web interface and it all comes up bold, sometimes having
    redundant album and artist info. Perhaps a good way to really work this would
    be to extent titleformat to provide an array of variables, instead of just a
    single formatted standardTitle string?

    It would avoid proliferation of format settings for every different type and
    place that a title might come up.
