Ann: XMMSDock 0.2.2

XMMSDock is a small dock app for controlling xmms based on a neat idea:
using pie menus in dock apps. This leaves more room for status display,
and makes it a lot easier to use (no more tiny buttons).


"make ; make install" should compile and install it. Once it's started
and xmms is running (it won't start xmms for you), it'll display time,
song length, and the song's title. Right-clicking (and dragging) brings
up the playing controls pie menu, and middle-clicking (and dragging)
brings up the volume pie "menu".

(For some reason, back-xlib draws really ugly circles; still works, but
it's really ugly. If you use back-art, I recommend:

defaults write XMMSDock XWindowBuffer-shape-hack YES

so you'll get round pie menus.)

(For those interested in pie menus, there's a generic and, imho, quite
nice pie menu system in PieMenu.[hm].)
