Interesting. For Ubuntu before Quantal and Debian before Wheezy metapackage 
libxine1 depend on libxine1-x. Starting Quantal and Wheezy this dependency is 
missing. Probably for this reason, the package KMPlayer explicitly states 
dependency: libxine1-x | libxine1 (<< 1.1.8-2). I'll test this afternoon and 
probably I'll add the same dependency also for kaffeine.

Package libxine2-x would probably have to be used if kaffeine or kmplayer were 
built with libxine2. Currently were built with libxine1.

Thank you for the excellent observation.
