Podcasts and Playcount

I’m use my Sansa e250 primarily to listen to podcasts.  I find it very annoying to have to drill down through a bunch of irrelevant Music options to get to my podcasts, I would much rather have a separate category for them.

Also, I would like to automatically erase podcasts as I listen to them – preferrably by updating the playcount and updating my podcatcher on sync.  Do any current Sansa products support the playcount feature of MTP?

The View/Fuze do not support playcount. Wish they did because I would like to be able to choose MUSIC > TOP TEN TRACKS or something like that. My last player had it and I am JONESING for it. One of the best features ever. That and tracking the date something was last played.
