Playlist highlighting - show me which playlists have the sel

Use case:
Trying to find out whether a track exists in one or more playlists or not. If not then add.

Something that really doesn't exist well in the linux world but done quite well in iTunes is letting the user know whether the song exists in any playlists.
iTunes does this in 2 ways:
1. Prompt the user that a duplicate is being added to a playlist (option to ignore)
2. Right-click menu on a track has an item "show in playlist" which then lists
playlists where the selected track is present. Illustrated here:

However I would rather prefer and option to highlight playlists:
Highlight all playlists in the list which contain the selected track(s).
This would require the option to have playlists visible in library view.
