 | - showimg - very nice qt based image viewer, great for fullscreen
 | slideshows with mouse wheel control
all your listened pkgs make a good picture. besides miro that i don't 
know, i support your decision. go for it.

isn't pulse a replacement for esd? i think it should be in extra, yes. 
there is a request for mpd to be compiled with pulseaudio enabled:
if you move it, let me know so that i can make mpd support it.
