Why not starting this now ? Are there any requirements and/or design ideas, 
which could be collected and dicsussed, based on a class model, sequence 
diagramms and so one for the main tasks perhaps using umbrello ? I can 
contribute my requirements based on recent audio code implementation and the 
code I have for the cygwin port.  

For kde3 this initial implementation could be linked static into kdecore and 
replace recent KAudioPlayer/Knotify audio code may be wrapped by an extended 
audio playing class. 

The kdemm dir should initial be located as subdir of kdecore and may be later 
placed in a separate sub dir. 

Any comments ?
