i love the way it is to work with, but i have 3 things i would like to see improved..

1. some way to make a playlist out of albums, maybe even artist.

Jonathan Matthew has been doing some work on this, and there is a patch attached to http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=147337. It lets you drag albums, artist and genres to the source list which creates an automatic playlist for that album/artist/genre. There was also a patch posted to the mailing list abut two weeks ago, which added a menu item to create a playlist from the currently selected genres, artists and albums.

2. fade in and out ting...between numbers.

Crossfading, or even just gapless playback is something that has been requested for quite a while. I'm not aware of any work that has been done towards this - amaroK has support for this with it's GStreamer backend, but I don't think it's as easy as just borrowing some of their code.

3. a queue method, like what the next track i want to here is... something like the "BMP" queue troggle... and so on...

There was some work (also by Jonathan) done a few months ago, which was in the "merge" arch branch. There were some issues that never got resolved (how it fits in the UI) and I think he wanted to clean it up before proposing it for cvs. We should see this some time in the future, but when i'm not sure.
