Yeah I got kinda caught up in controlling xmms, and overlooked the fact
that (as far as volume controls are concerned) aumix is the same deal.
Then as an added complication, I also made an assumption that xmms needed
a third party tool to hook into its controls (hence xmms-shell).

Also I've got some extra error checking. For example your script will fail
where a) it's first-time use and b) the volume is already zero (maybe you
manually turned down the volume, but forgot and thought it was set to
mute). In which case ~/.mute-toggle doesn't exist, and you end up passing
<null> to aumix.

So nnnyyyerrr yaboosux :)
