Unfortunately, mpg123 is not GPL, so we can't use it (and, we believe splay (which is GPL) is based too heavily on amp (which means if we use it in our software it could leave us open to a lawsuit from the people who now own amp).

I am personally interested in seeing what engine X11amp uses whenever they release.
