When last I looked (some time ago), none of the different XMMS

I just tried audacious from testing which was not able to even load
a single sound file at my side. There was (at least) a missing
dependency from libaudacious5 and probably other problems. I installed
the version from unstable and currently enjoy my old playlists. ;-)
I do not regard xmms2 as a practical replacement for my own purpose.
This client server model might fit other persons needs but not mine.
