Oops,  Ben - it seems I spoke too soon.
Xine plays mp3 without the extra codecs package here, I just tried it :(

I haven't looked at what the extra codecs actually support since I fired
off an answer...

Ah, it appears that libxine-extracodecs is a metapackage/ transitional
package, and its only dependency is libxine1-ffmpeg 

... which is installed as a dependency of xine-ui  now ....

So my solution is probably not a solution for you - sorry.
