modplug-xmms is not compatible with the xmms-crossfade
plugin:
http://www.netcologne.de/~nc-eisenlpe2/xmms-crossfade/download.html

If you try to play two modules gapless or crossfade
them, the crossfader starts the new song and plays it
into a buffer. This doesn't work with modplug, so the
first song aborts when the crossfader starts the next one.

It would be a nice feature to support the crossfader.

    I think it might be better to have crossfader try and slurp
    up the end of a song before starting the next one to play.

    I don't understand how this is supposed to work. If you want
    to crossfade, both songs have to overlap, so the next one
    has to start before the current song has ended. It should be
    possible to modify the modplug code, because other input
    plugins like uade are compatible with the crossfader.

    well, the OpenSPC plugin won't be able to play the end of
    one song and the beginning of the next one at the same time.
    So I think crossfader might as well do the work.
