>From my point of view, it's a personal preference based on my current
use of playlists.  I want to be able to see what's left in the playlist,
and how long it will run for, and I mostly don't care about songs that
have already been played.  The way I achieve this at the moment is to
manually remove songs once they've been played.

I'm starting to think that you're right that keeping played
songs around would be helpful, but I still don't want to see them.
Or at least I want to have the option of not seeing them.

A "remove played entries" action (rather than setting) might be enough -
it'd let me throw away that history when I decide I don't want it any
more, but wouldn't force me to manually select songs to do it.

It's always good to have someone insisting on having an actual
justification for these sorts of things.  Thanks for doing it.
