My use of case is like this: I don't want to use rhythmbox each time
it ends a song, I don't want to put attention in rhythmbox, but I want
to control what will be played, I want give it 30 secs right now, set
the queue and then I'll know exactly what will play, for the next 3
hours or more (even after queue is played). Right now I have to adjust
my listening of the actual song before setting the queue I need to
change to source "S" and set song "s" before start listening songs to
queue, which is "ok", just that I need to do that when the actual song
is ending (because I want to listen that song, want to avoid the next
one and all the others form its source) and with my 42 mins, 24 mins
length song isn't that "nice". I can live with it; but in the other
hand changing the behaviour to jump to S[s+1] after queue can easly
simulate the actual behaviour if the user just set the last song of
the queue as the next song that he is actually listening before queue
start playing.

I'm not sure if I explain well that the proposed behaviour can (with
more effort than the actual, I'm not denying that) simulate the actual
