Requirements:
xmms >= 1.0.0 and all the appropriate devel packages (glib, gtk+, xmms, glibc, etc)
xmms > 1.2.4 if you have problems with the prefs window popping up

What's New in This Release:
Added -R option to start xmms when wmusic is started, and to exit wmusic when xmms exits.
Incremented the minor version number, getting sick of 1.4.xx releases
