API for reading current system audio volume? [answered]

Since SoundEffect from the QtMultimedia QML module currently does not consider the system volume, I am searching for an alternative temporary workaround: Before playing the short sounds, I want to read the current system volume and set the volume in SoundEffect, accordingly.

Is there an API for reading the current system volume? No matter if QML or C++ API. I am also fine with any other way to get the volume, even if it is not via "API".

Thanks, Alessandro

And the even better news is that SoundEffect will automatically follow the system volume in update8: https://lists.sailfishos.org/pipermail/devel/2014-July/004643.html
