For those of you who want to know how to recompile the deb, download the
rhythmbox source tarball and diff from Developer Information.  Unpack
and patch (patch -p0 < rhythmbox-0.6.0-1.diff) the tarball.  Make sure
you have all the developer prerequisites, update the changelog with
`debchange` and `export enable_xine=3D"set"`.  Now, just `deb-buildpackage
-rfakeroot -us -uc`, and you're in business.  It might be a good idea to
