kaffeine has begun to look kind of shabby. I always installed it, as xine 
appeared to have the most complete set of codecs. Can other programs now deal 
with everything that xine/kaffeine was a fallback for? (Sorry, I have no actual 
examples, off the top of my head)

xine-lib is a requisite for xine-lib-extras-freeworld. Will amarok be using a 
different library to play mp3 in f16?
