There's already an upstream bug requesting this feature, so I'm marking
the bug as forwarded.
Totem is really a movie player, not an all purpose "media player", so I
don't think this feature is a high priority. If you want gapless
playback I would suggest you try Rhythmbox. Current SVN has this feature
and it works really well.
