OK.  0.9.13 sounds fine then.  Do you want to fix the configure check 
accordingly, or should I?

I've made a couple minor commits you might want to look at.  I changed 
KVideoWidget to prevent it from emitting an adaptSize when it isn't 
embedding a video.  I also changed xine_artsplug not to play() on 

Now the only issues I have left are relatively minor:  I'd like 
KVideoWidget to disable its size and fullscreen KActions when not 
embedding a video, and I'd like the fullscreen widget to honor the 
accelerators for those KActions.

Oh, happy days.  Hee hee hee...  I'm thinking I should get the Xine people 
to put up a screenshot of their code running in Kaboodle:
