Well, if there's going to be some part of the queue that's always
visible, it makes sense to show it there.  Since there isn't really such
a thing as it stands, I decided to put it in the status bar.

The queue display can be manually resized by dragging the handle
separating it from the playlist/library display, the same way the
browser panel can be resized.  I don't think it's worthwhile trying to
have it automatically resize itself.

I think the answer to all of these, as far as this approach is
concerned, is to add another expander thing like the show/hide browser
one in the same row as it, and have the queue expand above it, rather than 
below.  Screenshots/mockups to follow, assuming I can get it to work.

I have to say that the 'queue is just another source' approach is
looking better all the time, but we'll see how this one works out.
