It's too high-level, and very specific. However I'll try to provide more tools so that writing such a class doesn't require hacking into SFML sources.

It allows the configuration of any playlist, with loops and anything else one would want to do with return points. Why is it too specific?

About the high level, I guess it makes things simplier, and fits SFML.

How many users need a playlist? Definitely not a majority.

Don't misunderstand the "Simple" of SFML. It means that what SFML provides is made simple, not that it will simplify everything that the user would need to do (like an audio engine would do).

I look forward to seeing what you come up with, Laurent!
The audio part of SFML could use a little love in this regard.

I don't think this simplifies anything, it just increases the sf::Music funcionality.

But it is okay. I guess I'll wait for those changes you've said and make this code apart from SFML when it comes.

Well I think it does definitely make sense to have such a functionality, though not necessarily as part of the SFML base package. What I would love most is that Laurent finds a way so that Soundfile can be accessed from outside without having to modify SFML base sources and have Tex Killer's class available as an optional download (from the wiki for example) that simple can be dropped into the project, sort if like an extension.
