Okay, I've now added additional packages (still in the GStreamer section
- with the main Rhythmbox packages) called rhythmbox-xine which are
built with the Xine backend.

Installing it will replace the rhythmbox package, but it's named
differently so that users using APT won't get confused by it suddenly
switching to the Xine backend when they upgrade.

Yes, I know the 'GStreamer' section is horribly misnamed now, at some
point, I'll make it simply 'Multimedia', but I can't be bothered right
now :)
