Streaming Progress indicator

When streaming music it cuts out from time to time (presumably waiting for more of the track to download). It would be useful if there could be an indication of how much of the track has downloaded (similar to what youtube and soundcloud do).

 

Having such an indicator would allow the user to pause the track until enough of the track had downloaded rather than having the track pause from time to time randomly.

If that gets implemented there should be the option to turn this indicator on or off. I had so far nearly zero buffering problems and I guess some of the "magic" of spotify would get lost, if you were constantly reminded of the fact this huge library you're seeing in front of you is just a network problem away from being unaccessable.
