This has been said several times already, but since it seems to have not sunk 

JuK will drop configurable backends.  They're not there because I love 
configuration, but just because I wanted to offer an alternative to aRts in 
the KDE 3 timeframe.

amaroK will keep its plugable backend engine no matter what we choose.

That leaves Noatun, and yes, you will have to figure out how you want to solve 
things for Noatun.
