Add a playlist facility to control the sequence of playback

Users often stuggle with defining the playback structure of their score, This can be due to a wish for a very complex repeat/jump structure, or it can be because the playback instructions found in comtemporary music involves jumps and repeats, that can not be defined with the traditional notation.
To relive this problem it is suggested to add a new facility, which will allow the user to divide the score into segments, and create a playlist, that defines which segments to play and in which order.

Such a facilty may also be extended to alow the user to specify, for each instance of a segment, which instruments should be played and which should be muted.


FWIW, I like the basic idea here, and would urge you to find a way to integrate this with the "timeline" feature that is already present in 3.0 builds.
