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.)
