[packman] Package request: xt7-player-mpv [to "replace" bomi]

As you may have noticed, there are not a lot proper GUI players on Linux. I only encountered 2 that could be called feature-complete and stable: bomi and vlc. And the latter has horrendous interface. To make matters worse, it seems that bomi has been abandoned or, at least, its development has stopped (https://github.com/xylosper/bomi/issues/412) which is quite unsettling since it's not just GUI to mpv but entire fork that relies on constant code synchronization to avoid bit-rotting. Which is a shame since it possesses perfect balance of features and usability.

Now, there is only one known proper GUI to one proper player (gstreamer could also have been a nice basis for some super-player but didn't for some reason) - xt7-player-mpv:

But it doesn't have a package in openSUSE and making one is major pain in the ass because of its unorthodox dependencies. So, if there are someone who could make one, please do so. Maybe I'll try someday... but not soon.
