Ageed. I have xmms installed because its a dep for one of my quod
libet plugins. I accidentally opened it the other day and was
surprised to find it installed. ;-)

Also: if xmms has a high enough usage to be in extra, I assume gtk's
usage stats are even higher. So whatever arguments for
keeping/discarding xmms based on statistics will also apply to gtk.
