I'd need to look a the CSL code, but I guess it could be possible to use aRts'
features when CSL outputs through artsd.
If not, well, playing sound streams is always supported - for sure - and
having a media framework for decoding in process won't hurt either...

Well if forcing KDE users to have to use aRts and not be able to choose is a
good thing to do... then you're probably right.
