I appreciate the detailed reply, but org-tables is less tidy and browsable
than my simple hierarchy of nested headings; unless I misunderstood your
instructions. I copy / pasted what you wrote (starting with #+BEGIN) and
enabled interactive column view. But aside from a flashy change of colors
and borders, I don't see an improvement in functionality. What other
commands do you use in this mode when managing playlists? I could very well
be missing something here.
