Default Weighted random playlist

Recently I played some music videos for my friends. I had the playlist prepared before and played it randomly. I think I'd like to have this feature:

- I'd like to play a few videos preferentially, but still randomly. It's called weighted random.
- Every line in playlist could have optional attribute Weight (1-99, default 1), which causes higher probability of playing than the others.
- The playtlist could look like this:

Video2.avi #5
Video3.avi #5
Video4.avi #20

It means, that the most probable played first are Video 4, then 2 and 3 and then the others. Value 99 means the highest probability. Explicit probability falls with total number of files. But still it's a probability, nothing can guarantee, that the file won't be played last.
The feature that all files must be played before repeating, remains unchanged.

What do you think ?
