Queueing the stop button

Saturday, May 28th, 2005

So one thing I’ve noticed with amaroK/Rhythmbox is that I often (more than I would expect myself to) want to play only one song, or one short group of songs. Queueing functionality should be great for this—I could queue the songs I want to play, and then end the queue with a “stop” command. In fact, normally one queues songs in amaroK (Rhythmbox doesn’t have queueing) by right clicking on them and selecting “queue” from the context menu, so simply adding the same menu item to the stop button would almost work really well: it would be simple, non-intrusive, intuitive… the only problem is that it really wouldn’t be discoverable at all. Can anyone think of a way to make it more discoverable (or something else that works better)? Or is that actually good enough for that kind of feature?
