I don't like that option because then the two checkboxes aren't
orthogonal. If I check shuffle, I don't expect repeat to dramatically
change its behavior. Shuffle guarantees that you'll hear every song
before you hear the same song again, but as soon as you check repeat,
you can hear the same song pretty soon later. I think that'd confuse me.
This also doesn't let people pick their preferred play order if it's not
shuffle, linear, or random-by-age-and-rating.
I like the idea to make the behavior of the shuffle checkbox a
preference. I'm pretty sure that once someone picks it they won't change
it often if at all, so the full list doesn't belong on the main screen.
But I'll implement whichever the list decides on.
