When KDE is configured to be in double-click mode, there is no easy way to append an album/artist to the playlist (only double-middle-click or [keyboard modifier] + double-click work).
That's why I think a (single) middle click on the collection browser should append the item to the playlist.

Patch that implements the described behaviour
This make sense I think, can anyone please take a look? And Felix, does this patch apply also to git master? If not, can you please provide a new one? Thanks.
Yes it does. I opened a merge request at Gitorious:
There's a related feature that we had in 1.4, which I've always wanted in 2.x, but never came around to implementing:
If you middle-click on the playlist, the contents of the X11 clipboard could be appended to the playlist, as a URL. This is handy e.g. for quickly adding a radio stream URL.
This concept of pasting the clipboard contents into an application is very unix'ish, but it's also very comfortable, and it works in many applications. E.g. Opera does it, and Firefox also used to do it.
Why am I writing this? Maybe, just maybe, you might be motivated to create another patch, while you're at it. I'd appreciate it :)
Opened another merge request for that feature:
Hope to get some comments on both merge requests.
Wow, that's very nice of you Felix. We'll look at it, thanks :)
Ok, merged the playlist patch. Thanks again!
