[All] To build a better music player

To answer a few questions:

1) The new gstreamer back-end uses mutagen to read tag data from mp3
and ogg and not ID3. You will want to use the package I made for
mutagen since no other exists. I did not bother updating the mplayer
back-end as consider that deprecated at this point. That one still
uses the ID3.py library which I did not include.

2) I would have liked to use mpd, but I have never been able to find a
package for it for arm. It is not feasible to stream from a server,
since I listen to music in my car.

3) I will publish the packages to opkg.org later today if I remember.

Finally, if anyone has any suggestions on how to make gstreamer
suspend I will take them. I remember the suggestion of calling
snd_pcm_resume(). Unfortunately, pyalsaaudio has no such method ATM,
and I have no way of compiling it for arm after making my own changes.
