    It's called IMMS; it's really good, even though it uses some other
SQL system where I'd prefer Mysql, 'cause I'm used to it, and can
reference it from PHP.  While I can fake my way around in PHP, I'm no C
programmer; I was merely a newbie in 1989.  (!)

    There's a similar situation with Galeon & Firefox; Galeon, while it
has every feature I've ever needed and a couple more, isn't as modular
and (from what real programmers tell me) is hard to develop with, where
Firefox represents a re-write using all Gnome-specific stuff (whatever
that amounts to).  The idea is that Firefox is more portable across
platforms, so it makes a better strategic choice.

    Now, I'd love to live in a world where XMMS and Galeon are the only
choices, but it looks like 'the herd' is headed elsewhere. I suppose
I'll just get used to the idea.
