There will probably be Phonon bindings and they'll probably be in the initial 
PyKDE4 release. They aren't in the beta stuff yet because the Phonon 
interface has been changing and there are some issues with it that require 
handwritten code (nearly everything else is generated automatically). The 
support needed in sip either was provided or I fixed the error in PyKDE4 that 
was the problem (might be a little of both), but there are still a few other 
problems due to the way templates are used in the C++ code.

The other concern would be that the initial Phonon bindings may be buggy until 
someone writes some code to use them and discovers the bugs. I'll try to make 
a point of announcing here when the Phonon bindings hit SVN (or a tarball) so 
that you can try them out before release (if the timing works out that way).
