As someone who uses net-RB 5-10 hours a day, I must say I vastly prefer 
this over some of the others as well.

The only suggestions I would make would be to:

a) make shuffle and repeat standard toggle buttons (a 'la iTunes) rather 
than checkboxes. Use an image with non-priority text beside it for the 
label. Checkboxes seem to be more artifacts of dialogs and preference 
windows than an application's main window.

b) make displaying the meta-button a pref - I'll never use it and would 
much prefer the screen space instead. The toolbar is already cramped 
enough and will be vastly better for songs with long names and for using 
the seek slider without that button.

I'd really prefer to have the shuffle and repeat toggle buttons on the 
toolbar, but not at the cost of a cramped track name and seek slider.
