Subject: AVI and XMMS -- new info

Hello to my Gentoo friends,

OK, the xmms update from a few days ago made very few friends. 
Understandably so, considering its bloat and the fact that avi is handled
in a much better way by other players.  So, in reponse to that, for those
who like the "native" avi support in XMMS, please add avi into your USE
flags, and then emerge xmms.  For those who do not like it, please emerge
xmms :)

Please note that this avi flag will be in use in the coming future for a
number of things -- MPlayer and some other players will use it to
determine whether DIVx or win32codec support will be added to the

So, unless someone is feeling up to the challenge of porting avi-xmms to
use avifile-0.6.0 we have to do things like this...

But if you are interested, by all means do so, there are many who will
love you :)
