One is the ability to manually specify when a song begins and ends in any given playlist. I have a few songs I'd love to start in past slow intros.... and others that go on far too long. A plugin would be great.

Next, a "do not play" playlist.... Any songs on this list are automatically excluded from playing... they display, but are "marked" as "do not play". That way I can feel comfortable making lists by genre, etc. without fear that that "one nasty song I cant stand on an otherwise brillinat album" never plays. Make sense? I don't think the current zap list works like this, does it? Maybe the two could somehow be integrated?

There's no clean user interface for this, but there's a manual way to
do this. If you edit a playlist containing URLs you can add a time
as a fragment to the end of the url. For example:

file:///Music/Abba/Devil.mp3#12.2-34.7

Will only play the music starting 12.2 seconds in through 34.7
seconds. This is how we track fragments of songs for cue sheets.

Another good idea.

Please file an enhancement request on http://bugs.slimdevices.com/
for both of these.
