Well, If old versions work, great.  But at configure-time we need to 
disallow 0.9.14, or else people will just get compile time errors and file 
bug reports. :-)

I tried the exact same thing a couple months ags, too.  That sure is

I think it's a feature that aRts only sees file urls.  That means 
KPlayObject is using kio to connect to remote servers, getting KDE
