This already works. Keep pressing the Shift key while scrolling up to jump to the previous track and while scrolling down to jump to the next track.

A bit surprised about the direction of the scroll action, as I would have expected the next track on scrolling _up_. Of course, scrolling down on a page normally shows you the 'next' pieces of information. So, one could introduce a "nerd knob" in the preferences to set the user's preferred direction -- which would at the same time "advertise" the nifty mouse features on the tray icon!

It just follows the playlist order. The previous track is always above and the next track always below the current one.
One could think about a preference to invert these two, but there won’t be visible option in the preferences dialog.

As for advertising these things: we’ll have to look into that to find the most appropriate and least annoying way.
