Admittedly my view on this is skewed, since I follow PA's development
pretty closely, but one of the devs on PA (Colin Guthrie) has mentioned
getting various patches he's done for Mandriva's KDE implementation such
that KDE's mixer and such supports pulseaudio natively. Phonon would
output directly to pulse in that case, I believe.
