Is there a software that can create mp3 playlists using tags (or something like it)? MI

I like the idea of playlists. I am a devoted downloader (and I'm far, far away from any reasonably available legal music, so, y'know... when bands come through here (China), I usually do make it and pay out the butt to see them, and I support local stuff where I can find it; International Noise Conspiracy was in Wuhan a while ago, 'twas good), but I also like the album format. But it dawned on me after I downloaded ZZ Top's Mescalero that there are lots of songs on albums that really just aren't good. I've always downloaded/stored my music by album, which means I'm not to keen on manually separating my songs by folder. I don't want redundant copies of things on my HD, and having to manually add things to winamp/media player playlists is way too much work for my fickle, flighty moods. So I need something that can churn out playlists with tags, and then allow me to add a song on a whim by right-clicking the song and getting some sort of neato input where I can choose from multiple pre-existing playlists or new ones that I can create on the fly. Do you know of anything? If you don't, do you know of any sourceforge-type sites where a software program of this sort could be requested and written within my lifetime (sourceforge is good too, I'm just looking to increase my odds)? Fantastic if it's free, bearable if not.
