I'd say it would *appear* to be worse than simply only loading playlists when you first start the frontend. It would *appear* (I can only go by what I am seeing) that MythMusic is essentially caching *everything* you do in a frontend session and then only actually committing it when you exit the frontend "properly" (which it's beyond me how Exit -> Yes, Exit and Reboot from within Myth itself isn't a "proper" exit). If this wasn't true, then why are changes that should have been committed at the time they were done lost unless you exit the frontend "properly"? If true, I'd also say seems a dumb way to do it IMO.
