We could divide all this stuff in console and gui-based. Console:
mplayer, mpg123, cdparanoia and lame/oggenc (I think we should offer both,
since mp3 is still widely used, and we don't wanna start
discussions/flamewars like the vim vs emacs or lilo vs grub debates).
GUI: depending on kde or gnome (or the libraries you've installed).

And a more general question: how is the book supposed to be read? Is it
going to be a roadmap, where you pick the chapters you're interested in? If
that's so, than there's going to be a lot of dependency problems. There
should definitely be a section with a list of software and dependency's. I'm
compiling a new lfs-system now, so I'm gonna keep track of all packages and
write logs and stuff and send m in.
