On second thought, i think that using gstreamer is a good choice, since
we don't have to think about the backend (pulseaudio, alsa or OSS). The
xfce4 mixer sadly depends on libxfceui, but we can take a look at it.
Just a question (to everybody): with horizontal style, do you mean
horizontal scroller or horizontal controls? (i mean, the image i posted
or something like alsamixer?)
