I beg to differ. I think this is a rather technical argument with

Shrug.. if you want to look at everything from a very narrow user
perspective.. fine... but that's not the only perspective that have to
be considered as Core moves forward. There are rather technical
arguments and technical goals that will influence decisions, ignoring
this fact doesn't make it go away. Maintainability of the underlying
codebase is certaintly something that must be considered as part of
this fast moving and forward looking project. Its all about
trade-offs, and if bmp has enough of xmms's functionality i think its
worth be considering as a replacement xmms replacement IF working
towards removing gtk1 from Core is a long term goal.
xmms is a much better player then rhythmbox IMO, and I don't give
a $PROFANITY that it depends on gtk1. Not ideal, I agree, but not
having it around would be a major loss of functionality from my POV.
This is why i suggested that someone who has used both xmms and bmp
(aka beep) comment about bmp's suitability as a replacement.
