[Sugar-devel] About handing of files from external drives in journal

Currently journal copies the files from external devices and the
activities don't get any feeling from where it is coming. Which is
acceptable in most cases but while working on music playlist files
(like .m3u or .pls) it becomes difficult as they contain relative path
to the actual songs/videos.
Jukebox used to find the real path of the link created by the journal.
* Journal can keep an entry in the data structure pointing to the
real location of the file (the place it came from)
* Go back to old only link creating idea (Bad , this may break many activities)
I am looking for suggestions on how to overcome this issue.
