I'm just generally curious about why XMMS is a dependency for MPlayer in
FreeBSD.  I accidentally uninstalled MPlayer by uninstalling XMMS, and am
right now in the middle of reinstalling it from ports -- and it occurs to
me that, as far as I'm aware, MPlayer doesn't in and of itself actually
need XMMS.  Have things changed since the last time I ran a box with
MPlayer but no XMMS?
