I haven't yet reinstalled Play since installing Leopard, and I can't recall asking it to watch a folder, so I can't test this assumption, but I'd think that would be for if you want Play to automatically add tracks to its playlist. For example, if you created a subfolder in "Music" called, for example, "Play":

Users/hendrix/Music/Play

Then I'd think that if you were to ask the program to "watch" that folder, anything you put in it would turn up in Play's playlist without your having to add it manually.

I could well be wrong here, but you might test that.
