Just my two cents: I though "lightweight" had two meanings when it came to Xfce. One being you could have a minimal lightweight environment to work in. The other being that the applications made for it was lightweight themselves. I do think a musicplayer belongs in Xfce "proper". In my case it's one of those applications I "always" use.

Finally, the music player icon is one of the default ones on the panel when you install Xfce. That kind of give it's importance away, doesn't it? It would be nice if it opened a "home bred" application.. :)
