I don't use the gui either so removing it is fine with me. A TU might
be willing to put an mplayer GUI package in community.

BTW, I've started to work on an ffmpeg/x264 update that will
necessitate an mplayer rebuild. If we get a decision (it seems that it
will be removing the GUI) soon, I could implement it when rebuilding
mplayer. As I would like to do the rebuild this week-end, there might
not be enough time to reach a decision.
