Try it on a playlist of about 1000 MP3s, listen to it for about 3-5 days
and wonder why the same songs get played over and over again.
I think random() or rand() is the problem. I changed the XMMS source
to use arc4random() and that gives a real shuffle mode. However since
this plugin exists, I think that's the way to go.

I abhor a system designed for the "user", if that word is a coded
pejorative meaning "stupid and unsophisticated". -- Ken Thompson
