emms-pbi-export-playlist should do that?!

We had that but we weren't sure how to implement that in a usefull way,
so that changes in meta data occur to the songs ...

We wrote emms to be independent of xmms (or better: i work on it
therefor... :), but it shouldn't be hard to implement that ... but why
would that be usefull?

Yeah, editing info in playlist buffer would be nice, but it seems that
it would involve a lot of work ... we are happy about patches! :)

Can you open more than one file in ido-mode? And i don't understand the
buffer and softmixing thing...

If you want to contribute somehting you can just send it to the list,
but if you want to i'm sure someone can give you cvs access. Best thing
is to join #emacs on irc.freenode.net as all emms developer discuss emms
there... :) Although development wan't quite fast the last time...
