...wait, where *is* it specified that the examples are specifally for a
MPlayer config file (i.e., ~/.mplayer/config)? As far as I can tell, the
preceding paragraph is just a general overview of supported config
files, and the examples are the generic "could go anywhere" type. I
don't see anything to indicate that the examples are specifically for a
MPlayer config file, other than the fact that all of the previously
existing ones were appropriate for MPlayer.

I'm not convinced that this does need to go under a separate heading,
and if it does, I'm not sure how to properly delimit it.
