Along the similar lines as Ralf, I would also like the positions of
the context view and playlist to be exchanged. That would be a major

Another thing I would like is more visual feedback about the relations
between the UI. Right now the three views are visually different and
quite 'blocky'. Each applet is also pretty much its own thing.

Instead when a song is playing, it could have a different background
which matches the context view background, and its row would merge
into the context view by extending to the left (right?). This would
clearly mark that everything in here (the Context view) is related to
this song. Of course this would require custom painting of widgets and
might be a lot of work, but just my 2 cents.
