Quod Libet is really quite a cool player. I thought I had mentioned it in the manifesto but apparently not. I like the choice of browsing "views", the search syntax. It's not super fancy, but it's definitely interesting.
In the case of collections, the challenge was to abstract the concept and the API so that it could be used by all clients ("interfaces", if you want) and all the internal parts of XMMS2 transparently. In fact, it's only a building block for more advanced features (Party Shuffle, tagging, mlib organization, etc).
