Are you thinking of something like a plugin architecture or bindings for 
complete libs? If libs, which ones? I haven't looked at KDE's audio stuff in 
quite a while.

In general, bindings using sip are pretty easy to do, as long as they're not 
heavily template-based - most of KDE isn't. The problem would be that long 
term I probably can't commit to maintaining anything additional (I have 
enough trouble keeping up with PyKDE). I'd be happy to take a look at what's 
involved if you can be more specific. Depending on what's involved, I can 
generate a "starter set" of bindings pretty quickly for some stuff, or 
provide some assistance if you want to go at it.
