Timidity needs to bite the dust

I think that Timidity has to go. It has too many severe problems. It doesn't
follow KDE standards, the build process is ugly, it uses almost full cpu on
my dual athlon to play a single midi file, it is ancient, and it conflicts
with modern versions of Timidity++.
Can we junk this for 3.1.0 or at least the next release?
See mail from Pavel Roskin on bug #14436:
The old (ancient) timidity from kdemultimedia should not be installed at
all. It can overwrite a modern working version of TiMidity++.
Patch for kdemultimedia-3.0.2:

Actually I doubt that you even need to compile it. Use TiMidity++ and
require it's presence or rename your timidity to something else or
install it to some other directory like /usr/libexec where it would have
less chances to conflict with TiMidity++.
