By one developer who admits that Phonon is dying slowly and not developed 
anymore ;-) No, I don't want one multimedia framework rule them all but 
currently it's the best what we have (I'm not talking about Phonon backend - 
just GStreamer). In case of better framework in the future I believe I'd be 
one of first supporters (even it could bring troubles to Fedora).
