I tried the whole ncmpc/mpd setup, and moc, and mp3blaster. I've settled
on cmus because of its superior playlist support (If you clear a
playlist it continues playing. Mpd stops...), quick searching, and
lightning-fast library updating. And of course I get dwm status bar
output and keyboard bindings for everything on it ;)
