I feel like these are different concepts.  Playlists are an ordered
subset of the library.  You can start anywhere in the list, and once a
song is done it moves to the next one.  A queue would be different:

* if nothing is currently playing, you should be able to drag a song to
the queue to start playing only that song.  Once that song is finished,
RB stops playing again.
* once a song in the queue has been played, it should disappear from the
queue.  You would never want this to happen for a playlist.

It seems reasonable that the queue could be a new source that has a
similar implementation to playlists, with these two major differences.
