I agree Shaun. Alsaplayer is not currently hacker friendly.  I think that some explicit coding/commenting guidelines might be in order.  I cannot yet program, but I'm working my way through Stroustrup, and the man & info pages for ld.  I have put my first attempt at a developer readme @ http://alsaplayer.electrondreams.com/  I like the concept of alsaplayer and think that it can be saved. Consequently, I don't want it integrated into xmms and forgotten.  For understanding the structure, try source navigator, It can tell you what functions call what functions, and many other things.
