Should we sent a (friendly) request to the revived alsaplayer folk to maybe 
consider a name change? AlsaPlayer these days doesn't have anything more to 
do with ALSA than any other Linux media player does it seems but its name is 
confusing people into thinking that "alsaplayer" is the standard player for 
ALSA or something -- I've experienced that a number of times now.

Not that I care deeply myself or anything, but to help newbies...
