* there are at least two GTK2-based XMMS-derivatives
('beep-media-player' & 'audacious')
* FLAC does have an upstream
... isn't it possible to change the FLAC dependency on XMMS to a
dependency on/from "Beep" (or Audacious?) and get that patch accepted
upstream (in either FLAC, Beep or Audacious)?
(The XMMS plugin is also the Beep plugin now...)
