Bug Description

With the new 'smart scopes' & the addition of several music player scopes the Music lens can get quite unwieldy & somewhat incomprehensible
If more than 1 supported player (scope) is installed then tracks & albums get duplicated for each with no clear way to discern which icon goes with which player, the preview window is similarly uninformative

----------------------
Desired resolution:

- Yes all Lenses with more than one scope should have a "Source" filter category
- This of course also applies to the Music Lens

In addition to not being able to discern different player 'entries', considering the lack of any coherent ordering in the lens filtering is a must with a large number of tracks & or albums
