Well I guess what we would like is a GtkFrame (hideable by prefs) packed
vertically with the various other ones (console, print preview ...). I
gues it would come high up in the order though: above the button bars
immediately below the main toolbar. (And of course we then remove the
play and stop from the main toolbar). You would need a frame to allow
you to layout the various things you would want.

Inside that would be buttons arranged as you think good - buttons for
Play, Stop, set interval to play, pause (how easy is it to do that?),
then Master volume control, Master tempo control, go back,. - I am not
sure what else - alex made some suggestions on
perhaps someone could suggest a good set of controls and how they might
be laid out etc. It is not my strong point:)
Everything should be readily implementable using the commands available
- only Pause gives me pause for thought. Ask if you are not sure if a
command is there (or run DocumentCommand or whatever it is called).

for what? You could have dialogs to pop up to get start and end times,
but most people will want to use the mouse for that. (e.g. set interval
to selection).

well just a checkbox for Loop would be good - it would need to run a
script that set the callback on the end of play to play again unless
stop had been activated, which would require the control to leave the
script - I guess you are handy at this with all those buttons things.

No playback interval is the start time and stop time (si->start_time,
stop_time IIRC). These are actual times (from start of piece) in

Actually, talking about it this all seems quite a bit of stuff. Perhaps
just the simplest controls that show off some of the features of the
