Well Debian has another focus than Fedora Core, I won't comment further

It seems that you don't understand why we call it an XMMS replacement:
it's not at all about having all the same features, it's about the core
functionality. If we consider audacious an XMMS replacement it means
that we think audacious is as good or even better then XMMS for the core
functionality. If you don't like audacious to get many more users
because of it, we might indeed consider other replacements...
