Thanks for the reply.  A friend of mine mentioned using Rhythmbox, but
for some reason it feels odd to use the music library app to play an
"instant" file (I wouldn't use iTunes on windows).  Also, because movie
player is the default (I think) player for opening mp3s, it seems like
it's reasonable to consider it a universal media player.

I'll reassign my music files to Rhythmbox and see how it goes, and file
a feature request too.
