I use Stations in the Vertical layout, with auto-start enabled and add tracks set. I have it docked to the right of the Now Playing window. I'm using all 10 Station sets but all are not filled to capacity. I am using the Station Titles and have them assigned like this:
**Faves** - my group of various favorite playlists
**Luv Grooves** - my group of love playlists
**Breakin' Up** - my group of non-love playlists
**Occasions** - my group of playlists for specific situations
**Artists Faves** - my group of playlists of specific artists
**Artists Faves2** - my group of playlists of specific artists
**Inspirational** - my group of gospel playlists
**Soulful Singing** - my group of playlists that make you want to sing along
**Misc.** - my group of playlists that don't belong anywhere else
**Archives** - my group of playlists which I do not actively listen to but still contain some favorites

I like this idea I will update mine to reflect it.

The presets would play an assigned playlist or node like Stations does. I haven't done any skin or graphics like that but it should be fun.
I'm content with the simple layout, I would want something that does not take up any more real estate and would easily integrate with the preferred skin that I am using.

I think you can retire it.
