What's the UI for this?

Hmm.  That seems kind of confusing to me.  I'd rather simply have a
preference for whether or not there is a play queue at all.  If you
choose not to have one, it works exactly like rb does now.  Otherwise,
double-clicking on a song just queues it in now playing.  

If you want to get the behavior of (a), you could just go over to "Now
Playing", Edit->Select All, Edit->Delete.  Then double-click.

Hmm.  Not sure I like the jumping.  Maybe have a music note next to it
when it's playing.

This seems like it'd be fairly confusing...but I could be convinced it's
a good idea.  At least at first I think we should make "Now Playing" an
obvious subcomponent of the library.
