Compounding Smartness

Banshee's smart playlists can now be derived from other smart playlists. Since each one allows you to AND or OR a set of conditions, by compounding them you can create the full range of boolean queries. [visit blog post to see image, blogger blocks external referrers] You can create playlists that match against songs' metadata (including rating, when last played, number of plays, etc) and whether a song is (or isn't) in a normal or smart playlist, and then cap the playlist at some number of songs, minutes/hours, or MB, with preference to higher ratings, or whatever you want. I also added a predefined smart playlist for "Unheard Podcasts".
