I hope that as well.

If you want to try it out yourself, just get a source tarball and fire
up your gcc ;-)

No, seriously, the tarball supports being compiled into a .deb package
and supports many features (css, etc) that will most probably not make
it into Debian, even if MPlayer should.

So just read the README and give it a try.  Don't hesitate to ask me
for help if you hit any problems.
