I just noticed that anyone trying to use rhythmbox on a 640x480 screen
has bigger problems than the queue chewing up a third of their display:
the main window at minimum size is too wide to fit on the screen.
Maximised 800x600 is pretty comfortable.

I got it working, but it's ugly and confusing.  It's still not clear
which bit is the queue and which is the library/playlist.

It's slightly less ugly with the queue expander on a separate row:

so, I'm about at the point where I'm prepared to let other people
viciously criticize what I've done and complain that it doesn't compile.

  archive: jonathan kaolin hn org--2005
  branch: rhythmbox--queue--0.9

I haven't really used arch before, so I've probably screwed something up

The current revision is the 'less ugly' layout, but the code for the
'ugly' layout is in there, #ifdef'd out.  The code for the cluttered
messy status bar (with queue information) is similarly #ifdef'd out.

If something based on 0.8 would be more useful, I can quite easily back
port all my changes.  Probably.
