Gxine pros:
Browser plugin
More access to core Xine configs

Xfmedia pros:
Cleaner, easier to use UI (in my opinion)
Small nicities, like minimizing to systray, and tag editing support with Taglib

I think the only reason to prefer Gxine is it's browser plugin, which
while not pleasant, at least works.
