Steps 1-4 can be easily achieved using keywords or tokens. You
basically select the photos you want to insert in your playlist. Add
them the keyword "holiday_2010-20min". After that you select all the
photos with that tag and assuming you have the plugin installed you
export them to a "remote computer", which in your case will be a
folder on your computer. The only thing that will not work is to
export as links. I don't think there is an out of the box option for
that.
