    it is the same category of problems: xine and X are both applications,
    which, if lagged, are noticed by users. xine can be a perfectly fine CPU
    hog when playing back DVDs. It can also be a mostly interactive task
    playing back music mostly. For xine it's not just that audio skipping that
    gets noticed, it's also the video-playback jerkiness that can be noticed
    by users.
