I compiled the phonon-gstreamer 1.0 porting branch.  At first it
couldn't initialise but once I moved the file to
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt4 (from /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/kde4)
and installed gstreamer1.0-plugins-good it could initialise using
dragon but it didn't make any sound.  Not sure how to debug more.
