Just so you know, all of multimedia in KDE right now is totally up in the air.  
All of our options are unresearched.

1) As far as mixing goes, we don't know what we'll do (and I believe it's 
belongs in the kernel, but that won't happen).

2) There are various soundsystems that we have, including NMM, aRts, 
GStreamer, and even using the Helix stuff from Real has been suggested.

I think this counts as a serious problem for our plans and we really should 
have a plan before proceeding with KDE 4.0.
