To be clear, I was talking about the classic "Beep Media Player".  It
seems like there is a new "Beep Media Player" that isn't a WinAmp clone
anymore--I have no idea if this "BMPx" still uses the same plugins.

Audacious is a fork of the "BMP Classic", seems to be actively
maintained, and I think it already comes with a FLAC plugin?

So, currently we have packages for 3 programs with the same roots, but
judging from their respective websites only the newest fork (Audacity)
is really actively maintained...
