I was having problems with my ATV syncing and tried recreating my library. In doing so, I mistakenly threw away the .xml file with all my playlist information along with various ratings that were tied to smart playlists.
I looked in my time machine backups, but it wasn't there.
If I restore my old library from a month ago, will that contain my playlist, ratings, etc. or not? I have looked but can't find this information anywhere.
As noted above, the iTunes library.xml file is ONLY for other applications to use to access the iTunes library. iTunes itself does not use it.
Launch iTunes and the .xml will be recreated.

Yes it should. Make sure you restore the entire \Music\iTunes\ folder.
