I think they are useful. In Banshee we use them to decide whether we
need to transcode files before putting them on a device.

Attached. I made the playlist_folder into playlist_path with a %File
variable to accommodate devices that may only allow a single playlist in
a specific location. I didn't add a %TrackNumber because I was thinking
that applications could choose how to format the file name (01 - Track
Name.mp3 for example). But I'm not certain - maybe we should allow it
to be fully dictated by the device. The original goal of the
filepath_format key was really support different music folders and
hierarchy limitations, not file name formatting.
By the way, I've been browsing the HAL spec via this URL:
and it used to come up as a nicely formatted HTML page, but now it's
plain text.. Firefox recognizes it as text/html but it's still just
text. All the HTML tags seem to have been removed in the last commit -
was this on purpose?
