Ways to play music

If you’re like me, you’ve been using XMMS for music playback since just about forever.  It’s ancient, though.  It uses GTK1, and since Thomas Klausner is trying to get GTK1 dependencies out of pkgsrc, he listed a roundup of alternatives on the pkgsrc-users mailing list, most/all of which are in pkgsrc.  Pouya Tafti added some more.
