Why make it a playlist, when you can just add another pane to the
sidebar that has a list of songs in it as the queue. Like so:
|Controls	|Now playing			seek bar |
|Source		|>Hide Browser			Search   |
|Playlists	|Song list		 		 |
|...		|....					 |
|...		|....					 |
----------------|....					 |
|Queue		|....					 |
----------------|....					 |
|Songs that	|....					 |
|will play next	|....					 |
|in queue	|....					 |

That way, people can just drag songs from the music browser into the
queue list and it will be appended to the bottom.

Rhythmbox will then check to see if there are any songs in the queue
after a song finishes, or after a user presses the skip button. If
there is, it will then play the next song in the queue, and continue
downwards until there are no more, then go back to playing music

Sorry about my ASCII art, but it's hard for me to explain what I meant
in words.

Oh, and maybe this idea has already been brought up before, I haven't
been on the list for very long.
