Even then mplayer would have to keep track of the time played for a playlist
item in order to recognize the end of the track. And, the playlist would need
a possibility to skip before playing (no skip for normal playlists), since we
are handling tracks inside one big file.

I doubt that this is acceptable for plain MPlayer, although I would take it
into consideration for the GUI where playlists are handled more freely (since
there is an explicit option to load a playlist).

I guess this skipping and recognizing the end would be perfectly OK inside
the cue stream driver (since it's completely transparent then), but the
stream would need information and help from the demuxer in that case, and I
currently have no idea whether it's possible or acceptable for a stream to
access the demuxer.
