Thanks for your interest, James. Hope you are the one to get the $220.

I know that, I had a look at the mailing list archives. That's why I
decided to get money involved in the issue so things work my way. :) I
know it's a little selfish, but it's better than just arguing about
the idea for another couple of years.

This sounds good, kind of like Party Shuffle in iTunes, but without
automatically queueing up new songs. However, it is no longer a queue,
it's more like a multi-purpose queue/history panel. Any comments on
the way we should implement that UI-wise?

Also, I'm not really sure if the queue panel should be above the track
list or below it. Any reasoning why either position is better?
