Curses frontend for audio players

'cplay' is a curses frontend for various audio players. It aims to provide a power-user-friendly interface with simple filelist and playlist control. Since cplay' is written in Python, it can use either pyncurses or the standard curses module. The program currently supports ogg123, mpg123, mpg321, splay, madplay, and mikmod, xmp, and sox.
