Touché.  ;)

I could have worded that a bit better.  Apologies if that came out too
harshly.

It's not the age that bugs me, it's, well, the bugs.  I used xmms for
a long time, but as I digitized more of my music, I ran into its poor
utf8 support more and more, and I wouldn't say that I have a very
international collection of music.  And then the lack of antialiasing
in gtk1 made xmms stand out as the rest of my desktop grew a bit more
attractive.
