Ok. Optimizing this is something we haven't really worked on
Partially that's because it works fine on all my systems :)

Do you find queuing songs in Rhythmbox to be more difficult? Right now
you basically have to make a playlist if you want to do that.
Which of these problems do you think is more important?
Honestly I think the 'its slow on my older hardware' problem will
eventually just go away :)
I'd love to see a 'load these songs, and play them, don't load the full
db' mode in rhythmbox - but I'm not sure that's in the design so...
