Version bump for media-plugins/playground-xmms.
XMMS is now obsolete, although still in Portage and somewhat supported, we're not accepting any more related packages.
After some googling I agree with you, though I still don't like the idea. Anyway, if both plug-ins for playground are marked wont-fix there's no need to keep 122202 open.
So close that one up as well and I'll go in search for another mediaplayer that is still being developed.
