It used to be a player for EMMS, much like mplayer and mpg321 are, but
using GStreamer directly. I don't know if anyone is still using it, I
wrote the code some time ago for a couple of users, and stopped using it
some time ago too :)

Heh, well, we could remove it, if nobody uses it any longer, mplayer is
a very nice replacement, even on embedded devices where GStreamer is
heavily used. Furtermore, since GStreamer requires actual *compiling* of
code against an API, I don't mind keeping it out of the tree.
