Are you sure you need to have two frontends running (with the complications
of two programs trying to access the video and audio cards, etc.
For your examples:
- Reindexing my 90GB music collection only takes 2 minutes tops - so it's
not a big deal for me to wait for it (maybe the indexing is better in trunk
- Pause a live view and switch - have you tried using the PiP functionality?
- Listening to music which watching pictures, surfing web, reading feeds -
this functionality is already in trunk (miniplayer) and works great. You
can't listen to music while cutting recordings though.
