I'm not following you there... When I say "tweaks of the current
playlist source", I'm talking about changes UI-wise and behaviour-wise,
ie what you are expecting from a "queue" could be such a tweak. And I'm
not saying the queue should be a playlist exactly like the others, I'm
wondering if it could be made to behave mostly like a playlist.

Once again, why is it so neat and useful? I'm not against that, I'm just
asking you to convince me. I already mentioned 1 drawback removing songs
from the queue would have, and this is the 3rd time I ask for specific
reasons why removing songs from the queue would be useful without
getting 1 (even bad) reason. So why?
