XOSD displays text on your screen, sounds simple right? The difference
is it is unmanaged and shaped, so it appears transparent. This gives
the effect of an On Screen Display, like your TV/VCR etc.. The package
also includes an xmms plugin, which automatically displays various
interesting things as they change (song name, volume etc...)
