Yeah, that's what I'm mainly doing. But when I'm digging through
the older bugs in bugzilla there are always arts bugs cropping up.
I just thought that it might be possible, given its situation, to do
something about them once and for all.

I agree that allocating them all to phonon is not the right
approach, but are we ready to just close them, or is
there still a big enough possibility that some features might be
implemented or some more bugs fixed to be worth leaving
them alone for now?
