You can have mplayer installed without it necessarily showing up for
popcon. Since mplayer isn't in the debian repository proper, I have
downloaded the source, compiled it myself and installed it into
/usr/local. There are probably many other people like me.
I am not sure how useful the popcon numbers are besides giving some
kind of lower bound to mplayer.
