Can anyone point me to documentation or mailing list discussion as to
why xmms was removed from Ubuntu universe?

I mean, I know that upstream for the project is essentially dead, and
there are tons of other alternative music players available.

But xmms remains rock-solid for my use cases (streaming over http),
and I continue to build it in my PPA for each Ubuntu release.
