On releases:
- libphonon gets released with KDE and Qt. KDE 4.0 shipped libphonon 4.0, Qt 
4.4 will ship libphonon 4.1, KDE 4.1 will ship libphonon 4.2
- phonon-xine will only get released with KDE
- phonon-gstreamer get's released with Qt, but I will look into whether we 
want to release phonon-gstreamer with KDE 4.1, too
- phonon-qt/ds will only get released with Qt unless some KDE-Windows/Mac 
developer wants to do something there
