Indeed, its alpha and a skin app to boot, however it is trying
to be a diskjocky  kinda app. with 2 xmms-like panels and a
fader.  I haven't seen the like.

I hacked the build (autoconf stuff) and emailed Rob. Note: I got it
to build,  not run.  No docs at all, needs an XML playlist with
no example.  Let's lose this thread unless someone really wants
to work on it.
