I haven't looked at gnome-media 2.0 but gtcd is approximately the
right idea UI wise.

xmms on the other hand is totally, totally broken: no consideration of
i18n, no consideration of accessibility, and doesn't have window

_I_ can't read the text in xmms - I don't think it's very practical
for disabled users!

Windows Media Player carefully preserves keyboard navigation when
using the funky themes, and they have a "native widgets" theme that
would work fine for i18n, high-contrast, etc., and has proper window

Where we should be going in the end is to a media player, of course,
rather than simply a CD player, and handle i18n/accessibility as WMP
does. But for GNOME 2 a simple native-UI CD player is the only way I
see to ship something that works for i18n/accessibility.
