Question: How does winamp fill the playlist so quickly when folders are dragged onto it? For example, 77k mp3 files can be added in about 2 seconds.

    I imagine that's the amount of time it takes to scan the filesystem... it doesn't query information about the files (e.g. length or metadata), just the file reference (and it populates the other info later).
