Jorn? Where are you?

I see a net-rb shot on Jan/Feb. It was just (about UI) a rb 0.4.x, while
the rb HEAD have a "test UI"

So switch should be simple.

Real trouble is: the rb 0.4 UI is very buggy (well, HEAD too
) 
There are a lot of discussions in rb list and, if I remember well, in
the gnome usability (November 2002 or so) about its troubles and
plausible solution: the last solution is build something like an evolved
xmms: a main window with playing controls and available tracks with
secondary windows to load track list.

Unfortunately some people like the ALL_IN_ONE solution (bad: requires
interface changes switching from sources), other don't.

Personally I think that follow the UNIX philosophy is the best way:
actually a Music Player is a lacking feature of GNOME project, and to
have quickly a small, efficient, library_and_playlist oriented music
files player is better than a complete one.
