Yeah. I can see no reason not to put these in when they become more
mature. Gst-player is really comming on but rhythmbox is dead ATM.
net-rhythmbox is relatively stable, but will hopefully be merged with
rhythmbox eventually. May not be a 2.4 timescale thing though.

Agreed. I assumed it was already because I only use garnome and redhat.
It'd be cool to add the ability to detect blank cds as well and run an
app (coaster or nautilus-cd-burner come to mind)

I actually e-mailed the xscreensaver maintainer about that. He said that
he does not use gtk because the dialog is running as root and that would
be a security risk. I think that he will accept patches to improve the
dialog - but not to make it gtk.

Yeah, the GST is looking pretty good. We also need a "connect to
internet" wizard. Should be a part of the GST because the underlying
code is already there.
