Which is exactly what the second (using the numbering I had before) use
case - having a few songs play as soon as possible. I don't see why you
would need the as-a-source variant for that.

In regard to the recent discussion of having the as-a-source variant
show previously played songs: as far as I can tell, we already have
that; it's called a playlist.

Possibly I'm missing something, but is there any feature that it (if
keeping history) would provide that isn't done by a playlist at the
moment? Up until the queue got implemented everyone had to use a simple
playlist to get that functionality and it's always worked well for me.
