xfce4-xmms-plugin is a plugin for Xfce panel wich control xmms. It can control
xmms, beep-media-player or audacious, at least that's upstream claims.

But the player detection is made trying to open a lib provided by the player
(libxmms.so, libbeep.so or libaudacious.so).

Only xmms provides such a lib and it'll be dropped RSN. This plugin doesn't
works for other player currently (beep isn't even in debian anymore) and
pkg-xfce team agreed not to maintain it anymore.

Thus, we'd like to ask for its removal from unstable.
