Have you tried audacious ?

Audacious is xmms, with the UI ported to gtk2 and a still alive upstream which 
adds new features like support for various audio formats including wma and aac 
on a regular basis.

Your time would be much better spend on fixing any features you miss in 
audacious then on keeping xmms on live support. AFAIK the only thing missing 
are some plugins which have not yet been ported to audacious, most have been 
and porting them isn't that hard, the API is mostly unchanged.
