Thank you for that info!

I'm thinking about what to do with the tl (tracklist) stuff.
Some of it seems better-suited for high-level wrappers or
perhaps a separate process (spawned by dtas-player).

Things like removing a track or shuffling can take O(n) time
and have the potential to block a process if people do wacky
things like add 100K songs to the tracklist.

So there'll probably be a (configurable) limit on the
maximum number of tracks to keep performance reasonable.

I'll try to keep the existing command-line usage the same
as much as possible.

You might benefit from using a YAML file like I typically do for
editing.  The only downside is you need to create a YAML file
for each track, but that can be easily scripted, too.

The following YAML file should be playable on dtas 0.10.0 and later
(given an infile matching "foo.flac" in the same directory)

--------------- foo.yml ----------------
infile: foo.flac
  sox -M
  "|sox $INFILE -p $TRIMFX $LFX"
