doesn't phonon provide volume support nowadays?

Admittedly, you still need some backend installed. But you need that 
anyway to play sounds in the first place.

Makes me wonder; if we want to have sound; we depend on xine or gstreamer, 
right? I mean; depend as in a packaging manner.  No sound without 
installing some multimedia backend.
On that note; doesn't it make sense to tell people they need kdemultimedia 
to have some sound? Assuming that kdemultimedia will actually pull in a 
backend automatically (again, thinking packaging dependencies here).

Alternatively; (thinking a bit more long term now) someone should write a 
applet we can ship in kdebase which only depends on phonon and is capable 
of muting and altering main volume via phonon. Which then naturally does 
not depend on any backend.

Just to point out that moving kmix to kdebase is by far not the only 
solution to this also not exactly black&white problem ;)
