Well, you kind of put the finger on the problem right there.  You start
by saying "bmp is maintained".  Then you say "not actually".  And then
you name two other forks/developments of the original fork of xmms.

In other words, until the dust settles and there is an actual obvious
replacement, I don't think people are going to be helped much if we drop
xmms.
