answered in your other post:
   To do this, you ultimately want to abstract not only from glib, but from aRts.
   I think this would be beneficial in many situations where we currently simply
   force application developers that their application only works with aRts, but
   the details are currently still being discussed on various mailing lists.

i just believe that kde should
not require the opening up of
arts to give applications writers
the ablity to do sound based 

benefit to having the arts server
only linking rather than having
the apps linking is obvious. the 
glib dep conversations would be 
trimmed down a fair amount as it
would be only an "internal dep".

anyways, i'm confused by all this
and don't understand enough of the
internals of mm apps to give a 
worthwhile opinion so, i'll depart
from the topic.
