This sounds like a useful thing to have; one problem we see reported
every now and then is that the play queue ignores the shuffle/repeat
settings, and this was one possible solution I've suggested.

Upgrade to 0.11.3. This was a bug I fixed a couple of months ago,
where we weren't properly checking if any playlists needed saving.

There's no reason it wouldn't be. Please use the existing code style,
though. That is, 8 space tabs, no C++ // comments, and spaces between
function names and their arguments.

Please attach your patch to bug 165863 in gnome bugzilla (which seems
like the most appropriate bug) so it's less likely to get lost, and to
make it easier to track further revisions as they come up.
