What I like about the idea of "queries as playlists" is that it leads to
smart-playlist like functionality. You can have a "Unheard" query
playing, and each time you update the player, resume on power-on will
begin playing only unheard songs without you having to requeue each time.

Basically, if we ever see "smart playlists" which is an occasionally
requested feature, I expect the queries-in-playlists things will happen
anyway, so I'd see this as improving featureset.

Maybe an option, within the database, for "Insert Query" as a separate
way to do this. I dunno.
