Comment (by leavengood):

 I was not aware of this ticket before today, but I've had this thought as
 well, at least from the perspective of making the MediaPlayer internal
 media playing code available to other apps. I think we will need this to
 support HTML5 audio and video in WebPositive.

 I suppose making it a replicant is the "BeOS" way, but I also thought
 about just making it a library (libmediaplayer.so or whatever) which both
 the MediaPlayer app and WebPositive (and whatever else) can use for
 playing media. The replicant method is certainly worth exploring, but I
 personally would not want to be constrained to that.
