This sounds like a good thought.  The problem would be "what if I don't
have xine, but installing mp3 support drags in xine just for the
plugin?"  Usually the answer is "well, use conditionals" which are a
way to say "only include this package, if this other package is already
selected or installed".  However I think there is some desire to do
away with conditionals.
