I think the playlist buffer is hidden by default because it shouldn't
interfer with your work. But you can easily change the name:

,----[ C-h v emms-playlist-buffer-name RET ]
| emms-playlist-buffer-name is a variable defined in `emms.el'.
| Its value is "*EMMS Playlist*"
| Documentation:
| *The default name of the EMMS playlist buffer.

As you can see, I didn't like the space, too.

Are you crazy?!? F3 is `kmacro-start-macro-or-insert-counter', one of
the most useful keys ever! ;-)

But I like the idea of emms being a shorthand for e-p-m-g, but because
that's probably the first function a new user will try out, it would be
good if it opened the playlist buffer plus a message buffer where the
functions and keys to add tracks into it are listed. If there's an
non-empty playlist buffer that can be omitted of course.
