I think it's purpose as a burn button in playlist mode is pretty clear. 
How about if it is changed to a Show Browser button in the Library view,
like Danny suggested?

Library -> Show Browser
Playlist -> Burn
CD -> Rip

Burn might not seem so important to people without a CD burner, but I
think it is important to have it at that spot if it's going to be "Rip"
in the CD view.  Burn is to Playlists what Rip is to CDs.  It's the
whole moving your music around deal.

See above.  I like the expander arrow much better than the checkbox, but
dislike the fact that the control would disappear when moving between

Oh, the UI I hacked from yours has the ability to hide the
shuffle/repeat/search area when altering the size of the song view below
- that isn't intentional.

Yeah.  I must've been high or something (not sure how that would

I'm glad you like it - I haven't had any feedback from anyone else.  It
sounded like the main things you didn't like were my "assumed
behaviour", and the meta button.

The theme is a meta-theme called SphereCrystal.  I love it =).
