XMMS Weasel is a very useful plugin that slides XMMS in and out of the screen. As soon as the mouse leaves the XMMS screen. If the mouse pointer hits the edge of the screen where XMMS was hidden, XMMS slides back in.
I suggest this goes into media-plugins/xmms-weasel
Doesn't have any dependencies (except XMMS).

Please find attached ebuild xmms-weasel-0.0.1.ebuild
Arun, your ebuild is missing the Gentoo header which assigns copyright to Gentoo. As such, you retain the copyright for this ebuild, and we can't include it in portage. Do you wish to assign the copyright to Gentoo so we can include it in portage?
Oops, Sorry I missed the copyright header. My first ebuild submission, as you can tell. Please do go ahead and assign the copyright to Gentoo by putting the header in.

Re-attached the ebuild file (xmms-weasel-0.0.1.ebuild) with the copyright
header in it.
someone add this to the tree plskthxbye
kamagurka, this will be added in due time... there are many other higher priority bugs and other ebuilds that were submitted before it that I need to attend to. For now, you can just put it in your PORTAGE_OVERLAY if you want to use the ebuild.
seems this version is a bit unstable for me, sometimes it makes xmms crash.
the plugin is enabled, and I dock xmms on the top of my screen, but it doesn't hide...
I'm using xfce4...
won't commit as it doesn't seem usable to me... prolly jus ttoo early in development... looks like a good idea... reopen when a newer version addresses the bug I mentioned here and those with metacity.
hmm... it worked after I restarted xmms... and in order to disable it, I have to restart xmms again... so that's another bug that needs to be addressed before I can include this.
when enabled it still has one major problem in my eyes that will need to be fixed before inclusion... the dock location is different with this plugin enabled than when it is disabled.
I use xfce4, and I enable the toolbar on the top of the screen. With the plugin disabled, xmms will dock below this toolbar. With this plugin enabled, xmms floats above this toolbar and docks at the top of the screen.
