Well even the just released YDL 2.2 only has xmms-1.2.5, which is still
broken.  For the record, I did get the Rawhide xmms-1.2.7 source RPM and
did an "rpm --rebuild" on it, and can report that xmms-1.2.7 does in fact
work fine, but that was a fair amount of work and time.  I'm still going
to stick with my friend's dmasound kernel patch, so I don't have to go
through all this for the next sound app I might happen to try that's not
yet endianness aware.
