Actually, I would very much like to test the MediaPlayer on R5. I have 
started a complete rewrite of the playback engine. While I agree a rewrite 
to use the layout engine would be nice, the MediaPlayer in particular 
already does a good job at layouting and being font sensitive. So the 
immediate benefits are not there compared to other apps in the repo, at 
least IMHO. So if we could wait with this a little, I would be happy.

Best regards,
