Hm, it should skip to the next song, at least it did when I added that
feature...  A quick test didn't skip here, too.

Currently I don't have time to check what's wrong there.  Maybe last.fm
has changed something.  You could have a look if they provide an API
spec now and check if the commands emms-lastfm sends are up-to-date.

(When I wrote emms-lastfm.el the official API spec was the source code
of the official last.fm player.  I really hope this has improved.)

No, I've meant users that use `emms-all' because they want to use the
browser and mpd, but have no account at last.fm.

You can listen to last.fm radio without emms-lastfm-enable.  This
command only activates submission of locally played tracks.  (Listening
to radio will explicitly call emms-lastfm-disable, because the last.fm
rules say that you mustn'd scrobble tracks of streams.)
