I'm very interesting in having a common dbus interface. I was hoping
that something would come out of the discussion a month ago, but it
being spread across about 20 different mailing lists didn't help.

If there is going to be a discussion somewhere, can I suggest having it
on one mailing list and just posting a pointer to the others.

That sounds sensible.

We've discussed "mute" before, and I think the general consensus is that
it isn't anywhere near as useful for audio-only players as it is for
video ones. For audio-only players, pausing is usually just as good.
