Hi Tanguy,

I'm sorry for not replying (or even reading) your mails. I'd need to answer 
more mails than I can handle :-(

Yes, please apply for an account. Feel free to work on kdesupport/phonon. If 
you want to coordinate patches with me, IRC + pastebin works best for me, but 
sometimes (with some luck) I also reply to mails.

Yes, it's correct to use ObjectDescription instead of ints there. I need more 
time to verify that there really is no better solution than those new (ugly)

interesting. But I prefer a small patch to FindQt4.cmake (if needed) and then 
use a different variable for the includes instead of this evil hack. :-)
