kdeaddons should not depend on xmms

This is a companion to Bug 115067.
I am using the Fedora KDE 3.2 packages on the KDE mirrors. It's not
on the official Fedora mirrors, but the packager field says Red Hat,
so I'm reporting here in the hopes that it'll be fixed by official
rpm --erase --test xmms yields the following:
error: Failed dependencies:
libxmms.so.1 is needed by (installed) kdenetwork-3.2.0-0.1
libxmms.so.1 is needed by (installed) kdeaddons-3.2.0-0.1
Some messing around with ldd reveals that the dependency is most
likely caused by /usr/lib/kde3/mediacontrol_panelapplet.so, which is
part of the Kicker mediacontrol applet. This applet is probably
rarely used, because players like juk install their own more compact
controller into the system tray. In any case, it would be nice to
package this up separately.
It would be nice to package this separately. locate mediacontrol
gives the following list of files on my system:
I believe these are all related to the media control panel applet.
It should be possible to package it separately.
Incidentally, another reason that no KDE package should depend on
xmms is that xmms no longer cooperates with arts, due to glib
versioning problems. So xmms is pretty useless under a standard KDE
kdeaddon-3.2.3-2 has now subpackage kdeaddons-xmms. Thanks for your report
