Playlist Frontend

Here is a simple playlist frontend (in curses, as usual) for other media players. It communicates with the player program through signals, so the functionality is rather limited, just stop and start, but it's very generic. I have tested the program against mplayer and mpg123.

The main feature, and the reason I coded this in the first place, was to get a filter function. This means taking a large playlist with filenames and entering a (search) text to filter out which songs to listen to.

Here is a screenshot:
