I haven't touched further in a while (school, work, etc.) but I still
run it on my machine. I'm sorry it's such a mess-- I only had time to
put a few weeks into it.

My goal has been to rewrite the whole thing in python, which has a
number of benefits, most notably making the configuration file just
python code which will allow expressions like
xmms = Plugin.XMMS()
xmms.x = screen.width - 10
or some such.

(Do you like Python?)

But overall, further has been remarkably stable (except for the mail
plugin, which sorta sucks because I didn't know what I was doing when I
tried to fix it).
Here are some hints:
hide xmms from your window list, then right-click on the "load file"
icon to hide/show the xmms window.
and and and... I dunno.

I'm glad you like it, anyway.
