Bug#253530: kmilo: hardcoded volume control and mute dialogs

Package: kmilo
Version: 4:3.2.2-2
Severity: normal

When I enable support for my Logitech iTouch keyboard from KDE Control Center -> Regional & Accessibility -> Keyboard Layout the volume control wheel and the mute button are assigned to popup volume control and mute dialogs. While this is usually the desired functionality, some desktop systems like mine have their soundcards hooked into an external amplifier and thus the volume levels cannot be controlled by the master volume, but by the DAC volume slider.

The problem is that kmilo has no way to either disable this volume control popup or change it to affect to a different volume slider in kmix. If I try to map volume slider events as hotkeys directly to kmix, kmilo catches the events first and doesn't allow them to reach kmix. If I entirely disable kmilo my volume slider and other multimedia keys won't work at all.

Fastest workaround would be to provide some way to disable kmilo volume and mute popups, but it'd best to also be able to configure which volume slider they affect.
