Sure, it's a dependency, but it's not a hard dependency. You can get  
by on KDE 3 just fine w/o arts. You just won't get sound.

Who said that i was going to treat the unmaintained parts of kde 3  
differently? I also intend to do the same thing with the kicker and  
kdesktop products since those no longer exist in KDE 4.

However, since we're going to be releasing KDE 3.5.9 soon, then I  
will wait on doing this a bit longer.
