Well, everyone is free to write backends for phonon. If you want, you can even 
try to write a phonon-backend that does jack. But: What do you use for 
video[*]? Rely on xine or gstreamer? Then you can just use the xine-backend 
for phonon...

jack (as in professional low-latency audio) and phonon (as in generic 
multimedia framework) are two different things. I don't think mixing them can 
be done easily. And I don't think it is good to try to.


[*] A multimedia framework does more then audio, it does video as well. And 
that is why phonon afaik requires a backend to have video-support too.
