Totem will use compile-time configuration probably. I guess that people
that want Xine on their desktops already use xine-ui, not Totem anyway.
Totem is a movie player that just works :)

You're making gnome-xine as a Gnome UI with the same faults/problems
that xine-ui has for end-users. In the end, Totem will probably have
something like 5 or 6 config options, not much more. Xine has a
gazillion, most of them aren't useful for the end-user.

I see Totem and gnome-xine as having different targets.

Video processing and editing ? Blimey, I hoped that Xine would just be a
movie player and do it well...
