Playlist generator for Iriver T10 UMS

This is a simple python script that generates sorted playlists for the Iriver T10 mp3 player. It uses the filenames of the music files to sort the files.

It works fine on both win32 and Linux. But there is a problem with non-ASCII chars on Linux,
I get an error in the os.stat() function:

UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\u253c' in position 1 1: ordinal not in range(128)

I'm still working on it, however.

#!/usr/bin/env python
