Don’t Let Your Music Widget Take Space… Phantom Music Control for Android
XDA member Johny_G decided that since his preference for a different kind of rom in his device would hinder his ability to use a decent looking music player that would not be occupying half of his lock screen, he needed to do something about it. That is why, he created a widget for WidgetLocker called Phantom Music Control. Basically, this music control widget will hide itself when it is inactive, so that way you can control your music from your lock screen at leisure without the fear of music going off by itself or accidentally changing that song when your phone is in your pocket.
The widget is in initial stages, but the dev would love to have some feedback about how its doing. Please leave your comments.

You can find more information in the widget thread.
