This is great news ! You made my day ;) I have been thinking lately about 
how we can interact better with KDE developers and discuss the possibility 
of using GStreamer as the multimedia framework for both KDE and Gnome 
applications, and having actual code that shows GStreamer from a KDE point 
of view is the first step ! So I'm really happy.

I realize that we (GStreamer guys) as a project haven't reached out as 
well as we could to KDE developers, so here's my first stab at it.

What do KDE developers think of GStreamer ? What would make you consider 
using it as a multimedia framework in KDE ? What is stopping you from 
considering that idea ? And so on...

I hope to get some useful discussion out of this ;)

Thanks again, Tim !
