Ability to chain playlists so they automatically roll from one to the next

I would love the ability to chain playlists so that if auto-play is enabled, when one playlist is empty (has no items or all items are marked done), DoggCatcher will automatically roll over to play the next playlist I specify.

This should work for any kind of playlist--dynamic, user, system, or virtual.

To implement, in each "Edit playlist" window have a menu called "Next playlist" that is populated with the names of all my playlists (minus the one being edited).

Here's my real-life use case. I group my podcast feeds into three dynamic playlists named "High," "Medium," and "Low." The names indicate priority for me. I want to hear all my High episodes first followed all my Medium episodes, then lastly all my Low episodes, regardless of dates. Currently I have to switch manually from playlist to playlist. I would like to chain them together so they simply auto-play from High to Medium to Low.

Thanks!

It might be easier to let you put the playlists in order and then have an option to skip to the next playlist when one is finished.

Thanks for the feedback
