My new mockup is a lot like this one with a search icon and the beveled 
player area.

We'll have to look at how iTunes does it.

Agreed, but I think we need to spend maybe another week getting the UI
really poslished and getting agreement from all parties.

I may quote you on this. It's one of the biggest reasons I've been
trying so hard to get them unforked. One rb codebase is hard enough
for people to get used to - but no-one is going to bother with two,
and it's not obvious which one will end up being used in the long run.

Agreed - once we get the UI done we need to commit to getting to 1.0
before doing any major ui redesigns ;)
