MPD+pythm works just fine as a standalone music player as well,
of course.

Neither did I want to belittle your work.  Just pointing out that your
original motivation could have been addressed without reinventing the
wheel.  Maybe your wheel is really much better, but from what I've seen
in the past, we have too many toyish music players, so it would be
better to improve existing ones than to make yet-another-one.
