Please stop blaming the faults and defects of your packaging process on upstream
developers. Audacious 1.3 is perfectly capable of replacing XMMS, and has done
so in many other distributions already.

Moreover, Adam Cecile has tried to get 1.3 into both Etch and now Lenny, and has
so far been met with trouble doing so. You want your fixes? Guess what -- they
are in 1.3. Perhaps all that is needed is for Audacious in Debian testing to
actually reflect the current offering of upstream.
