Agreed. The backend restructuring that moved a lot of functionality
into the "core" library may make it possible to unload the GUI from
memory when it's not in use. Dynamic loading of plugins would
probably help a bit, too. But Amarok's always going to be on the
heavyweight end of music players because it does a lot more than "just
playing some .mp3 files in the background".
