Here are a few suggestions:
A pause button. If I'm looking for a specific part of a song, I find
it easier to listen and pause at that point. If I'm blip hunting all I
have to do is zoom in.
Either built-in scripting or a lot more console options with a non
interactive mode. I'll leave the details up to you guys, but the gist
of it is automation.
If there is nothing in a window, opening a file should not open another
Double clicking on the background should bring up the open dialog.
The placement indicator should not blink. If this is a way to make it
more visible then make it a color.
