which is the question i'm asking...

hehe, because i just wanted a music player, and it sounded like a fun
thing to write from scratch. i actually tried to write a simple
frontend to libxine once, after ripping the GtkXine widget out of gxine.
didn't work right for some reason, and i gave up on it relatively
quickly. at any rate, does gxine require the gnome libraries? last
time i checked, i didn't think so. i really don't feel the need to
reinvent the wheel in that case...
(note for the curious: my reason for messing with libxine before was
because i wanted a GUI just like xine-ui, only gtk-native and without
all that skinning crap.)
