Well, as far as kde4 goes, plasma should allow extenders for applets, so kmix 
applet could show just an icon (and possibly/optionally a pair of channels in 
the current kmix-applet style) and extend to a similar slider like 
kmix-systray does now. And it could land on desktop easily if aseigo lives up 
to his words ;).
