When I used Xmms, I didn't use playlist so much, I prefered selecting 
songs according to my mood. So I had Xmms enqueue as default action for 
audio files and I browsed my mp3s directory with nautilus, double 
clicking on each song.
It's why I like the idea of an active playlist we could enqueue song in 
it but I agree it's a bit confusing. I thought about an "enqueue in the 
currently playing playlist" action in the context menu, with a 
preference setting to set this as the default double-click action.
It's true we can do this with drag'n drop but double clicking is more 

Well, I don't know if it is a common behaviour but this feature would at 
least please one guy :) !
