This is by design, as the use-case is basically "I want to play this
song/these songs next".

The biggest issue with this idea is that there isn't a lot of room in
the sidebar, and even less if you're using the cover art plugin. I
haven't looked at how amaroK handles it yet (I haven't played around
with that part of it).

I had an (extreme-crack) idea the other week which may help this - I
thought that we might be able to turn the sidebar into an editable
toolbar. You could then add a second sidebar on the right and put the
queue there, and leave the sources and cover art on the left. Or put the
cover art in the "header" toolbar.

I haven't started any work towards it, it's probably full of horrible
HIG violations, and may not even work. But it would be cool.

There is a patch sitting in bugzilla which reads the icecast directory,

I've been meaning to update it, so that it's a plugin and adds a new
"Icecast" source. But I haven't gotten around to doing that yet.
