Just to confuse you some more you can also create folder type custom node for each souce too. They would look like:

Code:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<node order="1" type="folder">
    <label>Albums on source</label>
      <icon>MyIconForThis.png</icon>
    <path>musicdb://albums/?source=GuitarMusic</path>
</node>

So many ways to do it except an automated one, oh well.

Can I use a similar structure for the path in a widget in Estuary ?

Estuary produces it's right-hand pane with things like:
<include content="WidgetListSquare" condition="Library.HasContent(music)">
    <param name="content_path" value="musicdb://recentlyplayedalbums"/>
    <param name="widget_header" value="$LOCALIZE[517]"/>
    <param name="widget_target" value="music"/>
    <param name="list_id" value="7100"/>
    <param name="fallback_icon" value="DefaultMusicAlbums.png"/>
    </include>
If so, I can hard-code the header for now for various categories and change the value for "content_path" to produce a list of albums.  Also, would this work ?
<param name="button_onclick" value="ActivateWindow(music,musicdb://albums/?source=whatever,return)"/>

Answering my own question, it turns out you can indeed !!

Think I'll be doing some more editing and some more re-arranging of files now. So much easier to quickly find stuff when it's all there in front of you !

Without looking, I think the "widget" is simply a container with dynamic content.  So anything that is valid as a dynamic content specification should work which I guess is what the param content_path is providing.
