If I get this right, you are adding a playlist called "Party Shuffle",
which get priority above anything that's playing? (In other words: are
you implementing this the same way rhythmbox does it?)

WARNING: I might be wrong, check abock to be sure, but:
As we have the playingIter in PlaylistModel, wouldn't it be more sane if
a party shuffle plugin modified that iterator. Also, this way, you
wouldn't need a playlist for this, which also means that you can
implement a custom* view (which abock just recently made possible), one
that's more suited for the task than a simple playlist view (as this
would not be very intuitive).

Offcourse, that's just my 2 €c, feel free to discard it.

Kind regards,

* or is it hybrid here? ;-)
