I'd started work on this a while ago, but got distracted by something
else. I'll add it to my queue of things to try to remember to work on
after the christmas break.

As Andrew mentioned, you can also drag items from the browser into a
playlist or a media device to add them.

Perhaps we need to write better docs on what the Play Queue does, quite
a few people (definitely not just yourself) don't understand quite what
it does.

The play queue isn't like the main playlist that some other music
players have. What it is meant for is when you are listening to your
library on random and you decide you want to listen to a particular song
or songs next. You can drag it/them to the queue, then once the current
song finishes it will play them, and then go back to playing randomly.

If you want something like the "main playlist" from other music players,
you can create a new playlist using Music->Playlist->New Playlist.
Tracks don't get removed from normal playlists once they're played, and
it will work in order like you want to.
