OR, make a top level function that plays everything (something I love to
do, why play one album and then choose something else, play them all).
And then disable the play button when at the top level of Browse X,
Search Y, etc. If play button cannot be disabled, perhaps have it act as
the right arrow, which is what it sounds like most people really mean to
push anyway...

I second the motion. This is actually a little nit pick I have been
meaning for a while to add to the bug/enhancement database. I suppose
the only problem is what level to restrict the confirmation to. Perhaps
don't do it on a level basis but on the number of songs that selection
would entail. I.E. user hits add/play and if there are more than say 50
songs a confirmation dialogue pops up.
