what would be the alternatives? Some Gnome UI crap where half of the
important options can be configured with regedit only?

I looked at rhythmbox and it is catastrophic for simple music listening... a
huge window which requires at least the half of my screen width (the minimal
window size seems to be 670x293). No way to turn off the window title, no
'pause' control, no control to influence the position within the song, a
volume control where 3 small curves show the volume... As said... a typical
Gnome2 application which tries to follow blindly a UI guideline without
taking care about ergonomic.

BMP looks good on the first glance (the screenshots); I just hope that
it is a 1:1 gtk2 rewrite of xmms, and not something which tries to bring
Gnome2 ideas into it (like galeon 1.3 vs. 1.2)...
