[iOS SDK] SPTAppRemotePlayerAPI.play regression

[iOS SDK] SPTAppRemotePlayerAPI.play regression

I believe that there has been a regression in the way that the SPTAppRemotePlayerAPI.play method is handled. 

Previously it behaved just like the Web API variant, in that invoking it would clear the queue in addition to playing the requested track.

As of about mid March the queue is not cleared anymore.

The only workaround that I’ve found so far, is to invoke the SPTAppRemotePlayerAPI.skipToNext method until it returns an error, which indicates that there is nothing to skip to, as the queue is empty. 
Said workaround occasionally induces user interface glitches in the Spotify app, that prevent any playback-related actions from being performed.

I would really appreciate if this could be addressed, as reports of it (e.g. #351) have so far gone unanswered.
