Using the play multimedia key should spawn the player when it's not running?

Bug Description

Press play/pause key on keyboard. Do not have banshee open. A large translucent box pops up in bottom half of screen with a white circle and a cross through it indicator that this operation is impossible.

Open banshee. Now press the same button on the keyboard. Music plays, and another press music pauses.

All other media keys work, including a calculator button.

In this case, when pressing play/pause it should have the same effect as pressing the play button from SoundMenu. Opens banshee and plays immediately.

I think Banshee shouldn't open when we press "Play/Pause" on keyboard. In fact, I think the keyboard shortcuts are listened by Banshee, so it needs to be open in order to get the events.q
