Thanks Lucas,

I am currently using Foobar2000 and I
am pretty sure it does not support
embedded playlists in XSPF or any of the
other playlist formats.

The next step for me is to start looking into the code implementing the 
XSPF and see if I can propose some extensions.  Should be a great Summer 
project lol.
