No objections, since:
1) you already committed it into phonon/kcm
2) nobody has objected
3) Urs already likes it
4) the dox look complete
5) there are no Krazy issues (but phonon does have a few)

Monday (tomorrow) would be a good time to move it.

You know.. it would be really cool if you could make a movie of this
widget in action and somehow add it to the apidox.
