This would also be 'odd' for the caller to hear, but there's a simple solution: the entries in the to-be-played queue need to be 'tagged' in some fashion, so that the reason why they are in the queue is recorded. Then, when it's time to insert a periodic position announcement in the queue, any *existing* prompts that are in the queue to produce a periodic position announcement can be removed from the queue, and the new position announcement prompts take their place. If a set of position announcement prompts is already in the queue and playback for them has begun, then they'd have to be left in place, and the caller might hear 'you are second' immediately followed by 'you are first', but that won't happen terribly often.

I can document this proposal  in the source code, but I hope this doesn't mean that we're on hold again.
