the more popular mplayer gets the more it will be wrapped and such. for 
situations like these would it be possible to add the ability to dump back 
out the read in configuration? -dumpconf or something, would make checking 
for things like this much easier, as in order to work around this i'm 
going to need to parse the mplayer output for hints that it is trying to 
use a gui, e.g. grepping for "SKIN"
