Don't get me wrong, I haven't tooled around with multimedia stuff in awhile so 
I have no good technical opinion of the merits of libcanberra versus 
modification of existing KDE platforms. I was just pointing out another option 
regarding the sample caching being discussed although honestly I'm not sure 
that caching sounds is general-purpose enough to be embedded all the way into 
Phonon. It seems that the uses would be limited to notifications and games, 
and games should probably be using OpenAL.
