I'll just remind people here that pythm also works with MPD.  If you use
the MPD backend, it works very efficiently (probably the same as what
you see with your mplayer+intone).

The other advantage of MPD is that you can control it from anywhere
since the communication between the frontend and the backend is over
a TCP/IP connection.  E.g. you can use your FR's pythm as a remote
control for your other machines's MPDs (I have an MPD running on
a small server at home, turning it into a jukebox).
