Just one comment: gapless playback. ;)
I've noticed from my testing of amorok -> phonon-backend-gstreamer ->
pulseaudio that gapless playback doesn't work seamlessly. Especially
noticeable with a live album where there is a stutter, click or pop between
tracks when using the gstreamer backend, and that doesn't happen with the xine
backend. Not quite sure where to point the finger, amarok or phonon-backend-
gstreamer, just thought I'd mention it.
