That is still perfectly possible with phonon-gstreamer. My system does not 
have PulseAudio on it at all. (Before people start asking, it's simply for the 
same reason that I switched from aRts to aKode during KDE 3.5: I require 
exactly 0 features of a sound server -- it's not a knock on PA directly).

My distribution happens to support the ability to elide PA. If yours doesn't 
natively you might want to consider switching to one that allows you do to 
this without much agony on your part.

Either way, you should still be able to configure gstreamer itself to output 
to alsa-dmix instead of PA by default, no?
