The whole point of frameworks is to make sure that parts of KDE like
phonon do NOT bring a full-fledged desktop framework.  That is why
they are frameworks plural, breaking up KDE into individual pieces
that can be used either completely independently or only relying on
the mimimum other frameworks absolutely needed to do their job.

So moving to Qt or sticking with KDE will have no impact on what
phonon will pull in.  Phonon is and will remain independent of other
parts of KDE.  The point of frameworks is to make more of KDE like
phonon in this regard.
