Recently added to Debian GNU/Linux is the xmms-infopipe package, which
can be used to connect xmms (a music playback tool) to other programs
so as to provide position and status information.
For example, imagine mgp (the thing that you would show words using)
hooked up to xmms so that as a song plays the pages turn at preset
It might even be used to determine _which_ set of words to display,
according to what song was selected.
This might be handy.
