Yep, same concern here. I'm on the MATE packaging team and I am strongly against
packaging any of these X apps. They don't bring any benefit really, any of the
existing applications they are forking run perfectly fine on any desktop that
Debian offers.

I also fear additional work load for the security team if multiple instances
of the same media player have to be taken care of.
