In my opinion, treating the queue a playlist in any way is wrong. While
from a programming standpoint, it might be advantageous to implement the
queue as a playlist, it doesnt make sense for the user interface. When I
think of a queue in music software, I see it as something that, as long
as there are items in it, supercedes the current source, whether that be
a playlist, shoutcast stream, or the library, not as a source in

I like what Jonathan is proposing. I just hope that the queue
functionality is not tied to a playlist source. The "remove played
entries" type playlist is a neat feature I'm sure many will find use
for, and IMO is worth implementing. I feel that it is important for
usability to not call this the play queue in any way. 

Logically I should be able to have a playlist with "remove played
entries" enabled as the selected source, and then put songs from that
list into the queue.
