Apparently the review had gone unnoticed, but mga phonon maintainer
(Colin Guthrie) directed me to #kde-multimedia and tdfischer reviewed

Just noting it for the record, as this is slightly off-subject (the
patch of this thread is still unreviewed, I sent a query regarding that
to the original mplayerthumbs author earlier today).
