Tomahawk player status

See bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1698063

"libechonest has been removed from Debian unstable, with the rationale
that it uses an external API that no longer exists (Debian bug #862551).
tomahawk-player depends on libechonest, which prevents libechonest's
removal. Either the Kubuntu team needs to take responsibility for
libechonest and fix it so that it's usable, or tomahawk-player needs to
be fixed not to depend on it, or tomahawk-player needs to be removed
from the archive."

The player seems pretty dead upstream, and even has the commit in github:

https://github.com/tomahawk-player/tomahawk/commit/c8389592488c07079f40e7edb9195cfabbc58740

that to all effects it "is abandoned".

I've never had anything to do with this project, so I am asking for
opinions on continued 'fixing'

Ref kubuntu policy on unmaintained/dead upstream projects:
