It certainly is.  My results were on an old ½gig 700 MHz i810 based board with Lucid, Maverick & Natty.  I moved the HDD to an even older board 500MHZ 385 MiB with an add on card for the sound and slower CPU and got the similar results to you.  On another newer Intel based board both gave very similar results 21-22% CPU and 30MB RAM.  A move to a SiS based board with a 2gig CPU and one meg of RAM gave around 25MB RAM and 40% CPU for both. I tried both MP3 and OGG files.
Not really conclusive, one way or t’other.  Personally I’m not bothered which player is adopted. They’re both as bad/good as each other.
