Ah oke. Just some idea i have now.. Right now someone is working on a
Phonon QML thing. Wouldn't it be best for JuK to be (mostly) rewritten
using the phonon QML thing? I mean, KDE 5 seems to be going towards
QML, Dolphin seems to go in that direction and Dragon 3 is already
using QML :

Just some random thought..

And how do i even need to see YuK? As a foobar alternative for KDE?
