Is there any way to make Winamp's shuffle smarter, i.e. closer to iTunes?

I don't like using iTunes. It's got a huge memory footprint and very few features. One thing I do like, however, is its awesomely customizable shuffle. You can remove tracks from shuffling without removing them from your library. You can set exactly how random you want your shuffle to be. You can see what songs are coming up, and set them to skip in advance if you wish.
Why is it that Winamp has nothing close to this? When I'm indecisive, I know what I don't want to listen to, usually, and the features of iTunes let me not listen to it. I have a LOT of tracks by The Mountain Goats, who are good in small doses, but start to wear on you when you hear them every other song. There has to be some extension that gives me this control in Winamp. So I turn to you, MeFi: is there one?
