Phonon include headers mismatch

Let's decide on one thing only and stick to it:

Phonon 4.0 (KDE 4.0) headers are in Phonon/*
Phonon 4.1 (Qt 4.4) headers are in phonon/* says #include <Phonon>, but 
there's no such file in Qt sources. It does in KDE sources. says #include <phonon>. 
That exists in Qt sources, but not in KDE's.

The Qt examples use #include <phonon/lowercaseheader.h> (see

Qt sources don't have per class forwarding headers, but the kdesupport 
sources (trunk, to-be-4.3) do.

So I'm tempted to say we screwed up with Qt 4.4.0 and should rectify it 

We capitalise the P in the include dir, change the examples. For 
compatibility, we can provide a symlink for case-sensitive filesystems. 
And we add the per-class forwarding headers.

Do we have an agreement?
