Binary compatibility is for the client side, what transport protocol is used
is unimportant for the application.
I am not hoping to aRts to die, I'am just hoping that some day I dont have to
compile it before upgrading/installing KDE. It really makes no sense to
compile a sound-server for an application server that has no sound, when all
the applications are streaming it anyway to the X-server, and when the code
is hard to port, impossible to read and just plain annoying to compile on a
non-linux platform it puts me in a bad mood.
