This does not explain why it would have allegedly "broken" Phonon-VLC. And it 
does not explain how it will not reintroduce the problem that the commit did 

Besides, anything that this commit might have "broken" was surely already 
broken to begin with.

think I'd rather not care about Phonon at all and pretend it does not exist.
