The current incarnation of the patch makes you use the menu to switch
between "normal" and "random" which probably isn't that great.

What if we made the toolbar button switch between those modes, and the
menu just select which play order to use for random mode? It would mean
that we couldn't really have both "linear" and "linear-loop" in the UI.
