Merging kmplayer is worth a discussion, unless we fix kaboodle with 
nominal effort and pain. We're no longer in the 1990s --- we really 
do need a working default video player these days.

We have two hurdles with kaboodle:

Broken in R14. I can play audio files with some user accounts and 
can't start kaboodle at all with other accounts. Probably something 
at my end, but consistently I can't play videos.

The supported video formats are few and they are both early 
generation versions. Yes, both. As far as I can tell the only 
supported formats are early generations of AVI and MPG.

I filed bug reports against both issues.
