While this sounds nice, I can't think of a decent UI for it. The only
one I can think of that is easily discoverable would be to have a menu
(either in the main UI, or somewhere in the menu bar). I don't know that
adding yet another possibility to the competition for main UI space is
good, and putting it in the main menu seems "out of the way" for
something that is supposed to reduce changing back and forth.

That's only my opinion though (especially the second point), and I'm
sure someone will disagree with me, or (even better) come up with a
better idea.

Once empty it should revert to playing from whatever source was selected
before the queue took priority (which is the library if you play from
the queue on startup).
