That's the other option that most people think would work. I think (and
several other people on the list do too) that it is the best option
because the most obvious (well to me anyway) way of implementing the
queue basically makes it a playlist anyway. From what I've heard that is
basically the UI for iTunes' Party Shuffle.

As I said in one of the other emails, the important thing is to get it
working, and then someone will probably port it to the other UI option
and we can see which is best by actually using it.

Thats the other really good point for making the queue into a Source.

I think (from the quick play I had with my compile-from-arch) that in
the 0.9 development branch, the playlist that is being played from has a
playing icon next to it.
