i dont think XMMS is supposed to "fit in" with a desktop. it was designed after Winamp and one of the main features is that its fully skinnable. this was around the time before KDE and GNOME got big so everybody was using plain windowmanagers. integration wasnt as big a deal.

Thats why now KDE and GNOME have their own integrated media players. because for a long time xmms was THE media player for linux(imho), but then the issue of integration became more important as the Desktop environments matured. Xfmedia is just now following the lead of kde and gnome.
