The problem is that gapless playback on MP3 files is a hack because of the structure of the files themselves.  The only way to get true gapless playback would be to add something like a silence detection hack, and I doubt that PP would put hacks like this high on the priority list.

If you use MPC files for example, the playback is already gapless in FB2K.

There is a Crossfading plugin for winamp 2.xx.  I don't know how well it works, but you can go to the Winamp site for the plugin and check it out for yourself.  The built in Crossfader in WA3 works great.  I have both versions installed and when I want to hear gapless music I use WA3.

if you want "gapless" playback, you should learn to encode your files in decent formats first.
no "gap remover" for you.
