Neil is right.

Don't forget that we are releasing every now and then and therefore any 
attempt at replacing arts must be transparent to the user. Making this 
"feature" an optional thing is something that _might_ be considered. (It 
could be quite difficult to make such a huge replacement optional)

My feeling is that arts is a little heavyweight for especially audio 
applications and most of its features go unused contributing to total code 

Before you start the design you should also enumerate which applications in 
CVS use arts and in what ways they use. A realistic replacement will have to 
provide the essential features you mention such as audio/video
