How about automatically removing deleted files from the playlist?

Right now a dialog pops up when you advance to a deleted file and there's no way of knowing which entry it is. The "playing" icon could be put at the entry (better than just adding the name to the dialog... maybe both is an alternative) or maybe you could add an icon to the left of missing files and just continue playing. But I don't know. If the entry is automatically removed, this problem doesn't need to be solved.
