I think that the most natural keybinding for starting the track under
point is RET, but I don't really mind what stops the player as long as
it is a single lower-case key.

By "natural" I mean "in the context of an Emacs user". That is, I want
the same action which works in w3m, the grep buffer and *info* to work
for Emms: I put point over the item I want and press RET.

I don't use other audio players (besides last.fm, which I don't actually
interact with), so I can't really put it in any other context other than
the Emacs one.
