One problem with that is that most of the time it doesn't tell you what
is playing (for the current code anyway). I don't really know what we
should call it; everything I can think of either a) would be confusing
for new users, or b) doesn't really describe what it does. Something
related to the word "queue" sound the best to me, but I imagine that
those titles aren't the best.

How about "Sidebar thingy that makes songs get played Really Soon(tm)".
or not ;)

I don't know if those comments are worth 2 cents,
